The Faas Foundation

The Faas Foundation
The Faas Foundation was established in 2005 by Andrew Faas, and supports organizations in the areas of general health, education, medical research and psychologically safe workplaces. The Foundation was started because of Faas’s deeply held concern for solving health issues through funding basic research projects, as he is a cancer survivor. His work as an anti-bullying activist reflects his desire to create healthy work environments. The Foundation partners with a variety of organizations in the United States, Canada and Israel to collaborate on solutions for some of the world’s most pressing medical and societal issues, such as cancer research, workplace wellbeing and HIV/AIDS care. Currently, the Foundation is pursuing a two-pronged initiative to create psychologically safe workplaces by partnering with Mental Health America (MHA) and the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. The initiative’s objective is to gather undeniable survey data on workplace bullying, culture and the profitability of workplaces structured for psychological safety.
