The Foundation was established with a bequest from the estates
of Edna Berger, the first female lead organizer for The Newspaper Guild-CWA,
and her husband, the legendary Tin Pan Alley song-writer Gerald Marks.
We seek to bring the benefits of unionization to working
women and to assist organizations committed to those principles.
The goal is to provide financial assistance to women who are engaged
in union organizing and to assist working women who want to organize
other women into unions through training, research and other resources

And listen to " All
of Me", the song that gave us our start
Released in February, 2014:
"I’d like to thank Berger-Marks... for the vision that it takes to recognize the critical need to build and to support women’s leadership.”
