We Are Philanthropy: Wadad Abed

Posted on

“We Are Philanthropy,” a collection of short films that feature inspiring and diverse donors, has appeared on the D5 blog over the past few months. Produced by D5 and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, the films highlight how diverse philanthropists bring their life experiences to their philanthropy as they strive to achieve community impact.

Wadad Abed, philanthropist and strategic marketing consultant based in Ann Arbor, MI, is featured in this film in the series.  An immigrant from Palestine, Wadad serves on the Advisory Board of the Center for Arab American Philanthropy and is active in issues dealing with peace and social justice both within the U.S. and around the world with a special focus on the Middle East. Wadad views philanthropy as “investing in civil society…investing in the well-being of the whole.”
