The Milstein Foundation    index_2_1157234100

In 2000, Adam Milstein and his wife Gila founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation (“MFF”). The mission of MFF is twofold: 1) to strengthen the State of Israel, the homeland of the Jewish People, and its special ties with the United States of America; and 2) to ensure the Jewish identity and the special affinity to the State of Israel of the young and the future Jewish Generations.

Specifically, the organization’s philanthropic philosophy is to educate and train students and young professionals to identify with their Jewish roots, connect with the State of Israel, ignite their Jewish pride, and provide them with facts and the knowledge to advocate for the State of Israel and the Jewish people in their schools, campuses, among their friends, and in their communities.

The Milstein Family Foundation implements three (3) unique principles as part of its philanthropic motto of operation: “Active Philanthropy”, “Life Path Impact” and “Philanthropic Synergy”.

Active Philanthropy means in addition to funding organizations, projects and programs (“OPP’s”), the Milstein Family Foundation and its staff invest their time and resources to ensure the impact and success of the OPPs they support (rather than just contributing to the general fund).

Life Path Impact indicates that our OPP’s are continuously engaging our target audience from a young age through adulthood. Each major program that we support precedes or follows another one.

Philanthropic Synergy connects and combines resources of several philanthropic organizations to amplify the impact and effect of their joint efforts. The latter principle is the ability of several non-profit groups to work in unity and support mutual programs and projects in order to accomplish a combined effect, which in turn, is greater than the individual effects.
