Announcing The Julian Sandler Endowment for Executive Leadership Development

by Hillel News |Mar 24, 2009|Comments

It is with profound gratitude that Hillel acknowledges the establishment of The Julian Sandler Endowment for Executive Leadership Development, funded by a major gift from Hillel Board of Directors Chairman Julian Sandler, z"l, and his wife Nina Sandler.

Through his longstanding leadership involvement with Hillel, Julian recognized that Hillel Directors serve as critical change agents who drive Hillel's efforts to transform and sustain vibrant Jewish student life on campus. Julian was committed to ensuring that Hillel had the resources to recruit, train, and retain the highest caliber Hillel professionals — a core goal of the Hillel Strategic Plan that was created under Julian's leadership.

The Julian Sandler Endowment for Executive Leadership Development will serve as a living legacy of Julian's vision by supporting Hillel's training, executive leadership development, mentoring, coaching and evaluation program for its most promising new Hillel directors.

"This endowment reflects the devotion of the Sandlers to Hillel's work in inspiring Jewish students to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life," said Hillel President Wayne L. Firestone. "It is particularly meaningful because Julian created this endowment as one of the final acts of his life."

Additional contributions to the Julian Sandler Endowment for Executive Leadership Development will be directed to support Hillel's efforts to develop, nurture, and retain talented professionals.

Donations can be made online or directed to the Julian Sandler Fund, c/o Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, Charles and Lynn Schusterman International Center, Arthur and Rochelle Belfer Building, 800 Eighth Street, Washington, D.C. 20001.
