Board of Trustees


Alexandra Shabtai is a native of Los Angeles where she currently lives and works. She graduated from Boston University with a bachelor's degree in psychology and completed a master’s degree at USC Marshall School of Business in social entrepreneurship. In 2014, she founded a passion project, SPArt, as a response to a need for funding for Social Practice Art in Los Angeles. At the same time, she became engaged in her family's foundation. She currently serves on the Advisory Board of Diane and Guilford Glazer Philanthropies, which is dedicated to supporting Jewish life and Jewish people, among other focus areas.

The Jewish Community Foundation has been instrumental in facilitating the living legacy of my grandparents. Not only have they aided us in our mission-driven work, they have been incredible partners to me, personally, as I have journeyed toward a deeper sense of my own philanthropic approach. I am honored and proud to serve such an outstanding organization.
