Adam Milstein is an active philanthropist and community leader alongside his career as a real estate investor. Adam and his wife founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2000. For almost 20 years, Adam’s foundation has been working with youth around the country to help sponsor education opportunities and help young people connect with their Israel roots and Jewish people.
The foundation that Adam and Gila founded is only one side of the philanthropic effort that Adam Milstein supports. He is a co-founder and chairman for the Israeli-American Council as well as a board member for many philanthropic organizations, including Birthright Israel, StandWithUs, Hasbara Fellowships, Stand By Me, and various others.
The success of his career is important and it is also the perfect way for Adam Milstein to support his community. Since the beginning, Adam has continuously sought out to fund or develop organizations that help people on their life path. He has personally developed programs that tailor to specific audiences for children as well as adults. While Adam is not focused on one of his own personal endeavors, he also participates in guiding other non-profit organizations on the right path to increasing their impact on target audiences
Many years before Adam was set on his path to philanthropy, real estate, and Israel activist, he fought hard to make his way to the top, literally. Before Adam studied at and graduated from Technion in 1978, he spent several years in the Israeli Defence Forces and he even took part in the Yom Kippur War.
The military only made Adam stronger and gave him a deeper appreciation for helping others through his work. Adam worked at the family business with his father in real estate before graduating from college with a degree in economics and business. Today, Adam Milstein is a managing director at a private commercial real estate company known as Hager Pacific Properties. Hager Pacific specializes in industrial, officer, and family property replacement and acquisition and it is Adam’s job to oversee accounting and financing for the entirety of the firm.
