The Snider Foundation is a rightwing, Pennsylvania-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1978 by business executive Ed Snider.[1][2]

According to the organization's website, the Snider Foundation focuses on:

  • American ​Values: "Individual liberty, constitutional freedom, economic liberty and private enterprise are core values that influence our work."
  • Community: "Strong communities help everyone thrive. We support organizations dedicated to building better societies."
  • Jewish Culture and Survival: "Our family foundation embraces its legacy with philanthropic efforts that sustain Jewish culture and combat antisemitism."[3]

Snider Combined Funding with Koch Foundation to Create New Center at University of Maryland's Business School

In 2014, Ed Snider pledged $5 million to create the Ed Snider Center for Enterprise and Markets at The University of Maryland. The Koch Foundation contributed $1 million toward the project, allowing UM to "hire three professors and a managing director, in addition to support staff, five doctoral candidates and four post-doctoral fellows."[4]

Ed Snider Helped Found Ayn Rand Institute, Served on Atlas Society Board, Produced Movies Based on Atlas Shrugged

After Snider's death in 2016, Ayn Rand Institute founder David Kelley wrote, "Ed [Snider] was instrumental in starting the Ayn Rand Institute in 1985. After I founded The Atlas Society, he joined our board in 1995 and served until 2009. His impact was enormous; in addition to his major financial support he contributed his business acumen to board decisions."[5]

Snider produced Atlas Shrugged: Part I (2011) as well as Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt? (2014), parts of a movie trilogy adapted from Ayn Rand's book Atlas Shrugged.[6]
