The Bender Family Foundation was established in 1997 to provide the Albany area, which is our home, with additional philanthropic support. Our emphasis is on five areas that have a significant impact on the quality of life in our region: the arts, culture, education, environment, and history.


The Bender Family Foundation works with The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region for grant administrative services.
