The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County has received a transformative gift of $5 million from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation. This commitment, part of the final phase of a $15 million capital campaign, marks the latest significant investment by the Mandel family in the Palm Beaches. In recognition of their generous gift, the building will be named the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building. The building is located at 1 Harvard Circle in West Palm Beach and scheduled to open in late spring 2017.
“The Mandel family support is a testament to the inspiring work of the Federation and our partner agencies,” said Michael Hoffman, Federation president and CEO. “Their gift and their personal involvement will have a lasting impact on the Federation and this Jewish community for years to come.”
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, the Mandel Foundation focuses its philanthropy on cultivating outstanding leadership in the nonprofit sector. The Foundation supports other causes in the Palm Beaches, including the Mandel JCC of the Palm Beaches and the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach.
The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County supports a diverse range of critical causes and agencies, both locally and globally. It serves communities south to Boynton Beach, west to Wellington, east to Palm Beach, and north to Jupiter.
