The Sidney Myer Fund and The Myer Foundation are two separate philanthropic entities of Myer family philanthropy. They are both managed by the same team and have separate but complementary philanthropic programs and activities. Sidney Myer, a generous philanthropist in his lifetime, left a portion of his estate upon his death in 1934 to be invested for the benefit of the community in which he made his fortune. That act created the Sidney Myer Fund which exists in perpetuity, the income from which will be distributed annually.
