The Gandel Holocaust Studies Program for Australian Educators

Gandel Philanthropy

Gandel Philanthropy has been the vehicle for the philanthropic activities of the extended Gandel family since it was established in 1978. It provides support for traditional philanthropic activities and also seeks to encourage proactive, focused philanthropy, including projects that promote significant positive social change.
Since its inception Gandel Philanthropy has distributed millions of dollars in grants and has built a proud history of supporting both Jewish and general charitable causes. Gandel Philanthropy continues to expand its community involvement and influence and to grow its relationships in Australia and Israel. Current focus of Gandel Philanthropy is in community support areas such as education, arts, health and indigenous programs.
The Gandel Holocaust Studies Program for Australian Educators represents one of the most significant activities of Gandel Philanthropy. This program is seen as vitally important in raising awareness and understanding of the immense tragedy of Holocaust. The program also aims to promote human rights values and racial tolerance, topics that are especially relevant for a country as culturally diverse as Australia.
