Each week we will be introducing you to one of our Federation Women's Philanthropy Board Members.
This week, we wish to introduce you to:
Originally from Altoona, PA, Meg Mandel moved to San Diego in 2006 with her family after living in Boston, MA and Iowa City, IA. Meg’s introduction to the San Diego Federation was through the La Jolla Lunch Club. After joining the Women’s Philanthropy Board, she co-chaired the Lunch Club, and she currently serves as a co-chair of Leadership Development.
Before joining the staff at Congregation Beth Israel as the Director of Development, Meg was an active volunteer at the temple. She served as President of the Board at Beth Israel from 2013-2015; prior to that, she chaired the Development Committee, sat on the Executive Committee, Endowment Campaign Cabinet, Membership Committee, and co-chaired the Religious School Parent Committee. Meg is also an active volunteer with Words Alive, participating in the Adolescent Book Group program and on the Westreich Scholarship Committee.
Meg graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in American Civilization and earned an M.A.T. from Rice University. Her professional background is in college admission, education, and fundraising. Meg lives in La Jolla with her husband, Jess, and their two children, Emily and Jonathan (when they are home from college.)
