Teatown’s connection to the Rosenwald and Coudert families began almost 40 years ago. It all started with Jimmy and Mimi whose union brought the Rosenwalds and Couderts together. Their amazing commitment to each other, to family, to the community and to the importance of education found kindred spirits at Teatown. They often brought their children to the young Teatown preserve: to walk, ice skate, catch frogs and have a great time. It was a place where their family always enjoyed spending time together outdoors. As their family grew up, so did Teatown.
Jimmy Rosenwald was the first member of the family to serve on the Teatown Board, joining in 2010. Jimmy brought his wonderful sense of humor and financial acumen at a critical time for Teatown, helping the organization to expand in size, stature, and reach to underserved communities throughout the region. The family’s support of Teatown and its programs extends to Jamie and Laura Rosenwald, Cynthia Coudert and Brian Morris, Sandra Coudert Graham and Todd Graham, Jill Rosenwald, and Benno Rosenwald.

Following Jimmy’s passing in 2013, Benno Rosenwald served on the Teatown Board for two years before moving back to California to work in the film industry. Cynthia Coudert was the next family member to become a trustee. Cynthia still serves on the board today and brings her expertise as both a teacher and a fundraiser to Teatown’s Education and Development Committees.
