The Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture is pleased to announce a grant of $900,000.00 over three years to support the Commonwealth Club of California's capital campaign to purchase and renovate the Club's first dedicated headquarters. This grant is made in partnership with the Koret Foundation.
The Taube Foundation regards engagement with the community as essential for the full expression of citizenship in America. The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum, offering its more than 18,000 members over four hundred annual events on topics ranging across the spectrum of politics, culture, society, and the economy. The mission of the Club is to foster open public discussion in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the nation. Taube Philanthropies committed $100,000 over four years to support a series of lectures named the "Taube American Values Series." The goal of the series is to bolster civic discourse, leading to a broader understanding and reinvigoration of American democratic values.
The Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland, based in Warsaw, is excited to welcome a delegation from the Commonwealth Club of California when they visit Poland in October 2013.
