This is the second in an on-going series of articles highlighting some of the hidden gems in our treasure chest of people who give their time to our organization.

David Weber is a member of the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation board of directors, serving on both its investment and grant committees. His involvement began in 2007 when his mother became  a resident of the Jewish Home. Nita Corré, who was the president of the Jewish Home and Care Center at the time, invited him to join the Foundation Board of Directors. David understood the importance of supporting the Foundation for the Jewish Home where his mother still resides. “The investment committee has been the primary focus of my work with the Foundation,” he said. This committee works to monitor investments and draft spending policies to insure that the organization is spending and investing wisely. “I have also just begun to work on the grant committee. I find my involvement very interesting and fulfilling.”

David enjoys contributing as much as he can to the organization; he understands that volunteering in this way is a significant investment of time but says that “if you really want to volunteer you can always make the time. It means choosing your priorities.”

David works as an attorney at Mawicke & Goisman, S.C., in the areas of estate planning, probate, trust administration, and business matters. He and his wife, Sally, have one son, Ben, who lives in New York City.

Why does he serve on the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation Board? “I get the satisfaction of contributing to an organization that I have tremendous respect for. The Foundation and Jewish Home leadership, staff, and volunteers are an incredibly dedicated group and I am happy to be able to provide whatever support I can. The Jewish Home and the Foundation provide important services and support for many seniors in our community.”
