The Philanthropy Roundtable in Washington, D.C., has announced that Roger Hertog is the 2010 recipient of the William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership.  Hertog will be honored during the Roundtable's annual meeting in October.

Hertog is one of the founders of Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., Inc., and served as the investment-research firm's president until its combination with Alliance Capital Management in 2000.  He is currently the president of the Hertog Foundation, chairman of the Tikvah Fund, and vice chairman emeritus of AllianceBernstein L.P.

Devoted in his philanthropy to the advancement of ideas, Hertog is the chairman of the New-York Historical Society, chairman emeritus of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, and a trustee of the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI), the New York Public Library, the New York Philharmonic, and The Thomas Jefferson Foundation.  He has also been a generous supporter of school choice, university centers of excellence in political theory, economics, and grand strategy, and the study of the enduring ideas and principles of Judaism.  In 2007, Hertog was awarded the National Humanities Medal.

The prize honors the ideals and principles that guided William E. Simon's giving, including personal responsibility, resourcefulness, volunteerism, scholarship, individual freedom, faith in God, and helping people to help themselves.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports the Philanthropy Roundtable, the Manhattan Institute, and AEI.  Bradley has also supported a New-York Historical Society project.
