Announcing the recipient of the Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for Young Leadership 2014

Each year we honor a recipient of the Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for Young Leadership. Recipients are consistent leaders in our Federation volunteer community, have great potential for future leadership, and are 40 years old or younger. Please join us in congratulating this year’s recipient, David Saxe!

David joined the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties’ board of directors on July 1, 2013 as the Young Adult Division’s board president. David’s active involvement in the Federation began after moving back to the Bay Area in 2010. The Federation’s mission, his belief in supporting Jewish causes both locally and around the world, and his strong family background with the organization all sparked his strong commitment to the Federation.

In addition to YAD, David has served on the Federation’s Business Leadership Council Steering Committee, and was a member of the Federation’s first Impact Grants Initiative Committee. Additionally, he is a member of the National Young Leadership Cabinet of the Jewish Federations of North America. In 2013, David was the local chair for the National JFNA Young Adult Israel Trip, and is currently national co-chair of the 2014 Israel Trip. Currently, he also serves on the board of directors of ArtPoint at the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, and on the Contemporaries Committee of the Contemporary Jewish Museum, where he recently co-chaired the museum’s Out of Order Seder Dinner Benefit and Late Night at the Jewseum after-party, which raised over $100,000 in table and ticket sales.

David is a managing principal and co-founder of Calvera Partners, a real estate investment and advisory firm. Before founding Calvera, he worked as an associate vice president of investments for CIM Group, a real estate private equity firm based in Los Angeles. Prior to that, David was a senior market research analyst with Equity Office Properties Trust, where he was responsible for analyzing potential acquisitions, dispositions, and developments in major office markets throughout the country. David has a B.A. in Economics from Northwestern University, where he graduated Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. He also received a M.B.A. from the Haas School of Business at U.C., Berkeley, where he was co-president of the Real Estate Club.

Join us to celebrate David's accomplishments at Day of Philanthropy on October 30, 2014.
