Continuing Ray Shonholtz's Legacy

Ray believed in creating opportunities. A word used by everyone to describe him was "mentor." Partners, with support from Ray's family and friends, has created a memorial fund to support emerging social entrepreneurs. Join us in continuing Ray's vision and legacy.

An anonymous donor has generously offered to match all donations to Ray's memorial fund up to $10,000. This fund will be used to create a Raymond Shonholtz fellowship program at Partners to continue supporting new social entrepreneurs throughout the world. Donate to the memorial fund here:
