Members of the 2015-16 Jewish Leadership Training Institute (JLTI) class had one of the most anticipated sessions of the programming year: a session highlighting philanthropy with Bryan Glazer, co-chairman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The session took place on Monday, Dec. 7, at One Buc Place, the team’s headquarters, and included a tour of the facilities.

The program also featured Emilie Socash, who is both the executive director of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties and executive director of the Tampa-Orlando-Pinellas (TOP) Jewish Foundation.

The evening’s discussion covered philanthropy from both sides of the dynamic, giving participants a more complete picture of the process of charitable giving.

Among Glazer’s many charitable endeavors, he and his wife donated the lead gift to the new Jewish Community Center being built in South Tampa, which has been named the Bryan Glazer Family JCC in their honor.

“Beyond being totally blown away by Bryan’s generosity both in the Jewish community and outside organizations, I learned crucial aspects that define both sides of the donor/giver dynamic,” said JLTI class member Steve Graham. “For people my age, it was great that he mentioned there are different kinds of ways to approach giving, whether you give time or money. It was great to hear that giving at any amount, even small, can really help an organization in the long-term.”

JLTI aims to encourage and develop emerging young leaders from the Tampa Bay area and inspire them to get involved and take on leadership roles in their local Jewish communities.
