Mega-Gifts in Jewish Philanthropy:
Giving Patterns 2001-2003
By Gary A. Tobin and Aryeh Weinberg

The trends over eight years are remarkably consistent - Jewish mega-gifts exceeding $10 million to Jewish organizations were rare eight years ago and remain notably infrequent. This report presents findings from our new study on mega-giving analyzing over 1,000 Jewish mega-gifts of $1 million or more made between 2001-2003.
