Taube Philanthropies is pleased to congratulate our chairman, Tad Taube, on being listed as one of the 149 prominent U.S. living donors in Philanthropy Roundtable's recently published The Almanac of American Philanthropy. This list includes philanthropists from the "Philanthropy 50" list of biggest annual donors, the "Million Dollar List" published by Indiana University, and all American signers of the Giving Pledge, which Tad Taube has signed.

We are also proud to announce that in the "Major Achievements of American Philanthropy (1636-2015)" section, under the religion category, POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews is featured as one of the approximately 100 entries. The POLIN Museum entry begins: "There are facilities across the U.S. and the globe that remember the World War II genocide against Jews. But great museums celebrating the rich history and contemporary vigor of Jewish life are rare. A group of American donors led by San Francisco businessman Tad Taube and the Koret Foundation set out to remedy that." Tad Taube, Taube Philanthropies, and the Koret Foundation provided critical leadership for a collaborative United States capital campaign.
