Adam Milstein and his wife have long since been a part of the charitable contributions that the American Jewish and Israeli-American communities have received. There was a massive and impressively generous donation of $13 million dollars that was made to the Israeli-American Council. The donation was made by the Pro-Israeli philanthropists Sheldon Adelson and Miriam Adelson. This huge donation took place during the 10th annual gala located at the Beverly Hilton.
Even though the donation was impressive, it was not the biggest. The largest donation of the event was estimated to be $16.5 million dollars. Other similar donations were made by other generous pro-Israeli philanthropists such as Haim Saban.
The Israeli-American Council is a non-profit organization that was co-founded by Adam Milstein and his wife Gila Milstein. Since its inception it has been able to achieve extraordinary leaps in its selfless purpose. One of the most notable donors stated that he was deeply invested in the long-term success of the organization because of its vision of a nation wide community with Israel in its heart. His investment is not only in the organization but in the future of the Jewish and Israeli Americans to come.
Adam Milstein came to the United States in 1981 with his family. Since then he has been able to earn an MBA from UCLA. He was also able to climb the corporate ladder of the commercial real estate business and become managing partner for the Hager Pacific Properties firm. Some of the other non-profit organizations that Adam Milstein and his wife were successfully able to co-found are the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation and the Sifriyat Pijama B’America. These organizations are for the sole purpose of promoting the unity of the Israeli-American and the American Jewish communities.

I have always followed the philanthropic work of Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy since they began campaigning for education reform in Florida. At first I knew little about these two Grand Rapids, Michigan based educations reformers, but there commitment to educational opportunities being open to all has had a major impact on me as they have helped millions of children across the U.S.; I recently read an interview with Betsy DeVos with the Philanthropy Roundtable publication that explained a little of what drives the married couple to continue using their own funds to provide a better future for the next generation of Americans. Success for the couple now comes from providing the best possible educational opportunities after they were inspired to help others by trips to local schools in the Grand rapids area. Now retired, Dick DeVos and wife Betsy began working to change the education system in the U.S. when their own children were at school age and they met a number of low income families looking for the best possible future for their own children.
Dick DeVos comes from a line of philanthropists headed by his own father Richard, the former head of the AmWay Group was well known for pushing his friends and colleagues to provide support for local charitable groups. I have known of Dick DeVos for a number of years and followed him from his early days as an executive at the AmWay Group when he pushed forward the level of international trade ten fold over the course of a decade at AmWay. After exploring a career as the President of the NBA franchise of the Orlando Magic DeVos is reported by Wikipedia to have returned to AmWay to lead the group during one of its most profitable periods. One of the most impressive aspects of the life of Dick DeVos has been his devotion to charitable causes, included the many charter schools he and wife Betsy have helped establish in the state of Michigan; DeVos also looks to make sure the work he completes in education now takes on a global accent, which sees him offer scholarships to the Thunderbird School of Business to students from developing nations who show an interest in this area of learning.
