We continue our global fundraising efforts. Gail, Moe and Yoram continue to travel the globe to meet with wonderful philanthropists who share our vision of making the World’s Jewish Museum a reality for 2023.
During the past three months we raised $12,350,000 Million in pledges. We have received our first Israel pledge of $1M, a $1M from a donor in London, $1M from a donor in Vancouver a $100,000.00 from a donor in Ottawa!
We have just secured a $1M pledge from a donor in Winnipeg, a $7M pledge from a European donor, a $1M from a donor in Geneva, and another $250,000.00 from a donor in Toronto.
In addition to the land (which was donated by the city of Tel Aviv and worth over $150 million), over $100 M dollars in pledges have been secured to date from Jewish philanthropists including The Asper Foundation which is spearheading this inspiring project.
It will create a new message of and for the Jewish people. The Asper Foundation spearheaded the building of the spectacular $351 Million Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Canada which is now open and receiving rave reviews.
We are holding a major fundraising Gala on Thursday, June 6th, 2019 in Los Angeles, honouring Frank Gehry with a Lifetime Achievement Award. We will be sending out invitations in the very near future.
