The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies (ACBP)
“Our view of philanthropy is that, first and foremost, we must be a change agent and develop programs which look optimistically to the future. In that regard, the Institute for Personalized Medicine struck a chord. For, as with our other programs, our expectations depend on the expertise of people who share our vision. Thus it was, is, and will be with the Institute. We are profoundly grateful for the opportunity to help open new and exciting medical knowledge for the benefit of humankind.” - Charles Bronfman
The Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine (IPM) is supported through a generous gift from The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philantropies (ACBP). The foundations associated with the ACBP for over twenty years have focused their philanthropic vision on making a difference in Canada, Israel, the United States and around the Jewish world.
ACBP seeks to nourish the deep and fundamental human desire to belong to a community and to help individuals forge connections between their identity and community. Therefore, the principles and goals of the founders have been pursued via a myriad of programs and projects that are investing in next generations in an effort to change the world.
The major operating programs of ACBP are researched, developed, and incubated until such time as their theoretical frameworks are proven and their impact is both measured and understood. At that time, these incubated programs tend to be placed on a path toward increasing independence.
