Key Partners

In addition to our primary program areas, the Foundation works closely with several long-term partners.

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Ben-Gurion University, in Israel’s Negev region, hosts one of the country’s leading medical schools. The school and its affiliated hospitals and health centers serve the southern half of the country. The medical school at Ben-Gurion University, which is named after Joyce and Irving Goldman, plays a critical role in the health and care of the Negev's diverse population, including Bedouin and immigrant communities. The Foundation has been a major partner of the medical school over the past 20 years, and has provided funding for buildings, equipment, medical research, scholarships and an endowment. The Foundation is not currently accepting new proposals for work in Israel.

Northwell Health

For over three decades, the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation has supported Northwell Health’s dedication to being a national health care leader. Northwell Health improves the well-being of the communities it serves by providing the highest quality clinical care, educating the current and future generations of health care professionals, searching for new advances in medicine through bio-medical research and caring for the entire community regardless of the ability to pay. The Foundation is not currently accepting new proposals for work in the field of healthcare.

The National Breast Cancer Coalition

For more than two decades, the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) has been a leader in the effort to find a cure for breast cancer. NBCC is the premier advocacy organization working to increase public funding for breast cancer research. The organization also develops and invests in research to discover pathways to a cure, and trains women who have had the disease to work with scientists and researchers to provide the patient’s perspective as new studies and treatment protocols are developed. NBCC’s mission is to find a path to curing breast cancer by 2020. The Foundation is not currently accepting new proposals for work in the field of breast cancer.

Arnold P. Gold Foundation

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation has been a partner of the Foundation since 1999. Arnold Gold and his wife Sandra began their work to instill a culture of respect, dignity and compassion for patients in medical education because they believed that it would produce better outcomes for patients and strengthen the performance and resilience of medical professionals. The Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation is particularly proud to be a longtime supporter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society, which has recognized more than 23,000 individuals who are exemplars of humanistic patient care and who serve as role models, mentors and leaders in medicine. The Foundation is not currently accepting new proposals for work in the field of patient care.
