Raymond Shainberg Award
In 2020, the Jewish Foundation of Memphis established the Raymond Shainberg Professional Advisor Award to mark its 25th anniversary year. This award is granted to a Professional Advisor who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership, dedication and commitment to the Jewish Foundation of Memphis.
Raymond Shainberg, of blessed memory, was one of the founding leaders of the Jewish Foundation of Memphis. “Raymond was instrumental in creating our donor advised fund program, our legacy initiative and in helping professionalize the Foundation with the creation of the Professional Advisory Group. Due to his involvement, all our local Jewish institutions are benefitting and will continue to benefit for years to come. It is for this reason we created the award in his name,” said Laura Linder, President & CEO of Jewish Community Partners.
