FUNDRAISING UPDATES – FALL/WINTER 2018

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.
