Giving with an open heart will unlock a closed mind. It’s my favorite way to spend time and money.

This is a cause close to my heart.  My father and I created this annual scholarship, awarded to a college-bound Communication Arts student at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts, to honor the memory of my mother, Eileen Kleinert, for her love of children and for her years of volunteering at the School of the Arts. We've awarded two scholarships since its creation in 2017, to deserving students attending Harvard and Carnegie Mellon.

Please donate at the School of the Arts Foundation and select Eileen Kleinert Memorial Scholarship in the gift designation field.


Bile duct cancer is a devastating disease that is most commonly diagnosed in an advanced stage, due to a lack of symptoms and its fast-moving effects. Researchers are just starting to understand this ellusive cancer.

Please donate to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation to help find a cure.
