Commitment to Community

Fisher Brothers maintains a steadfast dedication to building strong relationships with our communities and reinvesting in the social fabric of the markets in which we operate. Through our family’s deep-rooted commitment to philanthropy, we have employed a proactive and sensitive outreach philosophy – collaborating closely with community leaders and stakeholders to ensure our efforts are applied in the most effective way possible.

Intrepid Fallen Heroes


Founded by the Fisher family, Intrepid Fallen Heroes is a leader in supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. Commenced in 2000 under the Intrepid Museum Foundation and established as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003, the Fund has provided nearly $150 million in death benefits and scholarships in support of the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation.

Center for The Intrepid


In 2007, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund completed construction of the Center for the Intrepid (CFI), a world-class state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation center at Brooke Army Medical Center. CFI serves military personnel who have been catastrophically disabled in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and veterans severely injured in other operations and in the normal performance of their duties.

Intrepid Museum


Founded by Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher, Intrepid Museum Foundation memorializes the distinguished World War II aircraft carrier to honor the men and women of the armed forces and their families. As the museum’s largest supporter, the Fisher family assisted in establishing the Intrepid as one of America’s largest maritime museums with more than 900,000 visitors annually.



In 2010, Intrepid Fallen Heroes addressed the need for treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by constructing the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE), a state-of-the-art facility offering advanced diagnostics, therapy and reintegration support for military personnel and veterans with TBI and post-traumatic stress.

Michael Tyler Fisher Center for Education


As part of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the Michael Tyler Fisher Center for Education is an 18,000-square-foot center consisting of classrooms, breakout rooms and a “Great Hall” – offering after-school leadership programs, educational tours, and enrichment programs.

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research


Founded by Zachary Fisher with David Rockefeller, the foundation serves patients and their families by seeking to understand the causes of Alzheimer’s while aiming to discover a cure for and improve the lives of those with the disease. Nobel laureate Dr. Paul Greengard directs the team of internationally renowned scientists who have provided the conceptual framework for understanding Alzheimer’s while developing new technologies that will accelerate the pace of future research.

Center For an Urban Future

In 2015, Winston Fisher created the Middle Class Jobs Project in collaboration with the Center for an Urban Future. Supported by Fisher Brothers and Winston Fisher, it examines the challenges facing New York’s middle-class job growth and identifies implementable solutions that elected officials can explore to expand job opportunities.

Project Basta

In 2021, Fisher Brothers partnered with Basta, a New York City-based organization that connects first-generation college students with career pathway roles, to develop an industry-leading program for students to work at Fisher Brothers. As Basta’s first collaboration with a commercial real estate firm, it has successfully placed more than 30 students at Fisher Brothers.

"We have to work together. Joining forces and being part of the solution is probably the greatest life lesson I’ve learned, because it applies not just to philanthropy, but also to my business life."
