Partners and Donors

We are very pleased to acknowledge the individual and institutional partners and donors who make Rohatyn Jewish Heritage projects and progress possible. Elsewhere on this site we thank our advisers and volunteers who provide experience and expertise in developing and managing the technical and social aspects of our projects. Here we would like to thank the many people who fund our work through their generosity, in both time and money, to keep us moving forward. Every gift is appreciated, and put to work. For anyone considering how they can help us in this work, please see our How to Help page; we thank you and will be very happy to acknowledge you here also.

The following organizations have provided leadership, strategic advice, information, and networking to help us learn and develop as a heritage organization. Most have also given their time and labor to assist us with tactical efforts, some since the very beginning of our program. None of these partnerships is formal, which makes us all the more grateful for the engagement of the representatives who have worked with us.

Generous friends, colleagues, and family have donated money and time to help cover the costs of Jewish headstone recovery work in Rohatyn since we first discovered the need in 2011, and more recently to support larger projects such as the Jewish mass grave survey planned for 2017. We are humbled by the quick and easy help so many people have provided. In addition to the people we are very pleased to acknowledge here, we remember many others who have given anonymously to support our work.
