Many of the charitable deeds that were attributed to the Israeli-American community were inspired from the charitable actions of a friend of Adam Milstein. That is when Adam and his wife began to co-found several non-profit pro-Israeli organizations. Adam and his wife have implemented what’s known as the Donor Forum. The Donor Forum provides a facilitated method of creating a closer relationship between philanthropists and soon to be non-profit organizations. The couple is also well known for continuously assisting pro-Israeli and pro-Jewish non-profits to get established. The couple helps them by providing the organizations with resources through their own organization.
Adam and Gila also participate in the events themselves to ensure their success. They actively participate and give their own time to work with people. Recent events have been able to raise substantial amounts of money. A recent event held by the Israeli-American Council was able to raise over $16.5 million. The donors that were able to assist in the raising of this lucrative amount of money were Sheldon and Miriam Adelson. Many of the participants feel that the IAC has made tremendous progress over the years.
