Lee Maschler and Trillium Pledge $500,000 in Response to Humanitarian Crisis in Israel; Issues Matching Challenge

NEW YORK, October 13, 2023 — In response to the unprecedented terrorist attacks and the resulting humanitarian crisis, Lee Maschler, the founder of Trillium, today announced a commitment to donate to four charitable organizations dedicated to providing humanitarian relief in support of the ongoing crisis.  

Consistent with Trillium’s past philanthropic efforts, Maschler will personally donate $250,000 while an additional $250,000 will be available to match donations from employees, traders, and friends of Trillium. In doing so, they expect to raise $750,000. 

In an email to the company, Maschler addressed the impact of the devastating terrorist attacks and pledged support to the people of Israel. Maschler told his team, “We stand together in empathy, compassion, and unity. We hope for a peaceful resolution and extend our thoughts and prayers to all those affected. Together, we will continue to foster a culture of respect, understanding, and inclusion within our company.” 

We encourage everyone to join Lee Maschler and Trillium in their effort to provide resources for the ongoing humanitarian crisis.
