In 1940, Madeleine Haas Russell and her brother, William Haas, established their philanthropic organization, the Columbia Foundation - a charitable organization dedicated to funding programs in the Northern California region, as well as nationally and internationally. The Foundation was an early funder of causes such as the Japanese American Student Relocation Council, which supported college education of Japanese-American youth interned during World War II. In addition, early support was given to forward thinking and varied social programs, such as funding for birth-control education and supplies to migrant women in California, as well as support to the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists to help discourage the further use of nuclear weapons. Over the years, the Columbia Foundation's main philanthropic efforts ultimately focused on several core areas: human rights, sustainable communities, food and farming, the environment, and arts and culture. Throughout its existence, the Columbia Foundation distributed nearly $85 million to various organizations in California, as well as nationally and internationally. The Columbia Foundation closed on November 30, 2013.
