Hillel Wins Prestigious Fundraising Award

Hillel at Texas A&M and Houston Hillel were jointly awarded “The Innovation in Fundraising Award” from Hillel International on December 16, 2015 at the Hillel International Global Assembly in Orlando.

Hillel CEO and President Eric Fingerhut presented the award to the two Hillels “for taking a bold and trusting step toward collaboration and the sharing of resources, yielding new gains for both partners.” The award recognizes the hiring of a joint development director, Lena Lieb, and the cooperation that position entails between the two Hillels.

This is the second award Hillel at Texas A&M has received this school year. The first was “Students Supporting Israel Award For Top Legislation of The Year” in August.
