The Moriah Fund Awards $220,000 to Support the Work of CGRS

The Moriah Fund has awarded the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies a three-year $220,000 grant to support the work of the center on behalf women, children, and other refugees fleeing persecution.

CGRS protects the fundamental human rights of refugee women, children, LGBT individuals, and others who flee persecution in their home countries. CGRS provides legal expertise and training; engages in impact litigation, policy development, and research; undertakes in-country fact-finding; and uses international human rights tools address the root causes of gender-based persecution.

The grant provides three years of operating support, from 2013 through 2015. It will also fund development of the first comprehensive study of asylum adjudication trends in cases involving the persecution of women.

“It’s gratifying to receive support from a wide range of foundations. The Moriah Fund uses a philosophy of concern for the disadvantaged, and a commitment to equity and justice, that is very much in line with our goals and work,” said Karen Musalo, director of CGRS.

About the Moriah Fund
The Moriah Fund is a private foundation established in 1985 to perpetuate the lifelong philanthropic commitment of its founders, Robert and Clarence Efroymson. Their philosophy of giving was rooted in fundamental Jewish values: a concern for the disadvantaged and an emphasis on self-help; a commitment to equity and justice; and a desire to improve the quality of life for Jews and non-Jews alike.
