In a world where needs are great, and with the philosophy that the private sector can make a difference, generations of Getz family members have improved the lives of others. The Getz family supports its individual and collective philanthropic interests through the Globe Foundation.

The Foundation also serves as a training vehicle for current and future generations of family members, teaching the history of the family’s philanthropy and commitment to continue its philanthropic heritage.
