RSMF is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible foundation founded in 2014 in memory of Richard Schoenstadt.

The Foundation was created by members of Richard’s family whose lives were touched and influenced significantly by his presence. This foundation was created not only to fill the hole in our hearts, but the hole in the world left after losing his knowledge and passion for the importance of the US-Israel relationship.
