Jewish foundations and philanthropists have taken on a critical role in Jewish life around the world, developing visions for the future and bringing those visions to life through their giving. We need to preserve the story of this work in funders' own voices — through their own records — so that future generations of Jewish communal leaders and historians will truly understand funders' visions, values, and activities. This task has taken on new urgency in a digital age as keeping and donating your “papers” is no longer such a straightforward task.
Join fellow funders and a distinguished panel to discuss the critical necessity of including funders' voices in the Jewish historical record, with concrete steps you can take to preserve your and/or your foundation's papers.
