Tzedakah, most commonly translated as the English word “charity,” also means “justice.” For the Reverend Donald Beisswenger, justice is an unending quest. He has impressed a deep, thoughtful life path upon the world in which he strives for social justice and nurtures others along their journeys. Among other roles, he has served as an activist against injustice, friend to prisoners and teacher to students. Donald believes in the power of charitable giving and the difference one person can make. With this Fund, he supports many charitable interests, including homelessness, spirituality, prison outreach, women’s rights and criminal justice.
