LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bel Air Investment Advisors, LLC (Bel Air) (http://www.belair-llc.com), a leading independent wealth management advisory firm to high net worth individuals, families, trusts and foundations, is proud to acknowledge Senior Managing Director, Todd Morgan, as the recipient of Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles’ (JFS) Spirit of Humanity Award for his continuing service and the establishment of The Morgan Aging with Dignity Fund.
“What brings me a profound meaning of accomplishment is aiding the community as part of Jewish Family Service commitment to bettering Los Angeles,” said Todd Morgan, senior managing director of Bel Air Investment Advisors. “I am honored to receive this award and to be part of the family at Jewish Family Service.”
Established more than 10 years ago, The Morgan Aging with Dignity Fund provides emergency assistance to Holocaust survivors in need of help paying for medicine, transportation, in-home care, funeral expenses and more.
"In establishing the Morgan Aging With Dignity Fund, Todd Morgan has helped hundreds of Holocaust survivors meet basic needs including medicine, home assistance, health care, and transportation," commented Paul S. Castro, CEO of Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles.
"Todd's generosity ensures that JFS can help Holocaust survivors - including those who live in poverty - age with dignity and maintain a strong quality of life. Todd is most deserving of the JFS Spirit of Humanity Award, and we are delighted to be able to honor his commitment to our organization and the community we serve,” added Castro.
During his tenure as chairman of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, Mr. Morgan received a phone call from a local rabbi and Holocaust survivor who was unable to afford even the most basic day-to-day necessities. Mr. Morgan became aware that the rabbi was not alone and that many Holocaust survivors were dealing with the same issues. Since its inception, The Morgan Aging with Dignity Fund has assisted more than 800 survivors, and helped to increase awareness of this important issue.
“In his leadership role with JFS and other Jewish organizations, Todd has encouraged many people to increase their generosity to make the world a better place,” said Reed Halladay, managing director at Bel Air Investment Advisors. “I can’t think of another man that deserves to be recognized as Todd. Out of selfless regard, he has given time and means to ensure a better life for all those he can help and has developed a concern for the well being of the unfortunate victims of the Holocaust.”
Concurs Darell Krasnoff, Managing Director at Bel Air Investment Advisors, “Having worked side by side with Todd over the last 30 years, I have seen how effective he is as a leader both in business as well as in the community.”
Morgan will be officially presented with the award at Jewish Family Service’s 18th Annual Tribute Dinner on May 19 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
