OVERVIEW: Jordan Hymowitz and his wife Sarah give through their Hymowitz Family Foundation, which gave away approximately $144,000 in a recent year in modest amounts. The couple's Jewish giving includes support of religious and community organizations. The Bay Area is an important region of giving.
BACKGROUND: Jordan Hymowitz graduated from University of Michigan. He worked for Montgomery Securities as a vice president and was a principal and senior analyst with Robertson Stephens. Hymowitz is currently a managing partner of Philadelphia Financial.
COMMUNITY: Hymowitz and Sarah, via their foundation, have supported like Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, The Peninsula, Marin, and Sonoma Counties; Jewish Community Relations Council of San Francisco; Israel Emergency Alliance; and Jewish Family & Children's Services.
RELIGIOUS: The couple supports their temple, Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco. Other grantees include Congregation Beth Tovim.
EDUCATION: The Hymowitzes have supported Brandeis School of San Francisco and Hebrew Jewish College - Jewish Institute of Religion, including its American Jewish Archives program.
LOOKING FORWARD: Jordan and Sarah are young and very much engaged in business, but perhaps larger sums will stream through their foundation in future. It is also worth noting their efforts to bridge the differing views of the state of Israel amongst the American Jewish community. Their philanthropy goes outside the Jewish community as well.
