Honoring Dana Corvin

Each year, the Judith Chapman Women's Leadership Fund of the Jewish Community Endowment Fund recognizes a woman who exemplifies significant and sustained volunteer leadership in the Jewish and general community, serves as a role model for others, and values her Jewish identity and the importance of tzedakah in her life. This year, Dana Corvin was chosen as the Judith Chapman Memorial Women's Leadership Award Winner.

A third generation San Franciscan, Dana Corvin has devoted herself to the Bay Area and Jewish communities for almost three decades. An educator and a two time business owner, Dana has balanced each of her three careers with her full-time activism and volunteerism. Through her work on the Boards of the Contemporary Jewish Museum, the J. Weekly, Mt. Zion Health Fund and Temple Emanuel, Dana has ensured that a vibrant and thriving Jewish community exists within the Bay Area.

A leader throughout the Bay Area, Dana has played key integral roles on the Boards of the Stulsaft Foundation, American Red Cross, SF State University Foundation and United Way. Dana has honored the Jewish Community Federation through her service as an officer, as a Director on the Board of Trustees and the Jewish Community Endowment Fund, a member of the Board of Governors, a mentor with Women in Leadership and a leader on countless other Federation committees.

At Federation, the Jewish Community and throughout the Bay Area, Dana is known as woman of wit, warmth and wisdom. Dana is married to Harris Weinberg, and is a stepmother of three and grandmother of two. Dana will be honored on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at the Women's Philanthropy Annual Meeting & Celebration.
