Sabrina Merage Naim on Philanthropy

Posted on: 01-08-2017

Last month, Sabrina Merage Naim was featured in prominent women’s magazine Women 2.0. Sabrina provided insight into both her bank loan etf venture capital, Echo Capital Group, and her philanthropy, the Sabrina Merage Foundation.

“Why did you start the Sabrina Merage Foundation? Expand on your mission statement: “Promoting tolerance and acceptance of diversity through education.”

When I was graduating from college, my grandmother decided she wanted to make a gift to all of her grandchildren in order to start their own philanthropic foundations and become communally involved. This was very unique, as the norm is to see families have one large family foundation with a board of directors who collectively decide on a giving theme and donors. 

In this case, we are able to individually pursue projects that are important to us. At that time in my life, I was seeing a great deal of division on college campuses due to people’s beliefs, race, religion, socio-economic status, etc. These clashes were creating larger and larger divides among students who should celebrate the diversity of college life above all. 

It became important to me to partner with organizations that promote community, inclusiveness, and education of our differences. I also have a strong connection to my Jewish roots and enjoy partnering with organizations that promote togetherness, heritage, and community resilience.
