Ethel and Don Parsons Philanthropy Fund

We are proud to have made a commitment to the Community’s Create a Jewish Legacy program.  We appreciate how important the Community, its agencies, and its institutions have been to us and our family throughout our lives and want to ensure they continue to thrive in the future.  Ethel’s family, including her brothers, her parents, and their families (both the Budins and the Schers) have deep roots in the Wilmington Jewish Community.  In the case of Ethel’s  parents, they date back more than a hundred years.  We and our children, Anne and Elliot, have benefited greatly from the investments those who came before us have made to develop and sustain active synagogues, the Kutz Home, the JCC, and many other important Jewish organizations in Delaware.  We look forward to doing our part to keep the Community strong for the next generations.
