Adam Milstein: Influencing Philanthropy

Adam Milstein, an Israeli-American activist and philanthropist, was recently named one of the 200 Most Influential Do-Gooders In The World, an annual list compiled by Richtopia. He is number 187 on the list.


The Richtopia list of influential philanthropists is not compiled based solely on wealth; rather, it looks at their social capital, including their social media influence.


Regarding his inclusion on the list, Milstein said, “My philanthropic work is one of the most important and gratifying parts of my life, and I am honored to be included among so many leaders in this field.”


Adam Milstein is a proud supporter of Jewish and Israeli issues, including the relationship between Israel and the United States. He tweets regularly @AdamMilstein about issues including Palestine, anti-Semitism, and Russia.


Milstein is an Israel native and served in the IDF during the Yom Kippur War. He graduated from the Technion in 1978, and earned an MBA from USC in 1983. He is a managing partner at Hagar Pacific Properties, a real estate firm that owns and manages several properties throughout the US.


In addition to his work in real estate, Milstein is a prominent philanthropist serving Jewish and Israeli causes. With his wife, Gila, Milstein founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. The Foundation provides charitable and philanthropic services, as well as dedicated time and resources, to organizations, programs, and individuals that strengthen Jewish identity and support Israel. Milstein is also a cofounder and chairman of the Israeli-American Council, where he oversees its national expansion.
