Instilling a sense of wonder, respect, and stewardship for the Pacific Ocean, its inhabitants, and ecosystems
The Aquarium's mission is to instill a sense of wonder, respect and stewardship for the Pacific Ocean, its inhabitants and ecosystems, by involving the community, the region, and the nation in engaging, educational, and empowering exhibits and programs. Our vision is to create the first aquarium, and perhaps the first institution, in the world dedicated to conserving and building Natural Capital (Nature and Nature's services) by building Social Capital (the interactions between and among peoples). Opened in 1998 and located on the urban waterfront in Long Beach, California, the Aquarium of the Pacific hosts approximately 1.5 million visitors each year. The 156,000 square foot campus houses over 11,000 animal inhabitants of the Pacific Ocean, which provide the foundation for all Aquarium activities and serve as ambassadors for their animal counterparts in the wild.
Educating the public about contemporary Latin American fine art
The Museum of Latin American Art's mission is to educate the public about contemporary Latin American fine art created by artists who have lived and worked in Latin America since World War II, through the presentation of a significant permanent collection, dynamic exhibitions and related cultural and educational programs. Founded by Dr. Robert Gumbiner in November 1996, it is the only museum in the western United States that exclusively features contemporary Latin American art. Through the utilization of its permanent collection, traveling exhibitions, and programs, the Museum educates a diverse Southern California audience about contemporary Latin American art.
Perpetuating Jewish life. Today and tomorrow.

More than fundraisers, we are expert facilitators who identify, convene and nourish the critical partners, programs and services that touch thousands of lives, every day. In your neighborhood, your country, and around the world.
