A connection many years ago through the Ziv Tzedakah Fund, introduced Larry Paul to the Good People Fund’s Founding Executive Director Naomi Eisenberger. This Spring, he joined their Board of Trustees. The Good People Fund (www.goodpeoplefund.org) is a national organization rooted in the Jewish tradition of tikkun olam (repairing the world) that offers financial support and mentorship to small, effective initiatives in Israel and the U.S.
“While Larry’s years of service and knowledge in the financial field as a planner will serve as an invaluable asset to our organization, his enthusiasm for our tzedakah model is equally important. He is a mentor in his field and his dedication as a chazzan to his Jewish community are both values we admire and associate with at the Fund,” said Naomi Eisenberger, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Good People Fund.
Larry brings his expertise in many areas to the board of trustees. He is a professional Certified Financial Planner™, Registered Representative and Investment Advisor Representative with Raymond James Financial Services, Inc. A natural educator, he teaches continuing education classes and conducts seminars for investors. He is the creator of the “Brain Trust,” a group of financial planning professionals who meet bi-weekly to discuss investment ideas. Larry also is chazzan for High Holiday services with Rabbi Avis Miller at Sixth and I Historic Synagogue in Washington, DC, where this year they will mark their 34th year together. He is a University of Maryland graduate, and proudly holds Series 7, 24, 31, 63 and 65 securities licenses. He is married and the father of three children and one grandchild.
“The Fund’s Tzedakah work is definitely part of the work for Tikkun Olam. We have an amazing set of Good People beneficiaries meeting peoples’ needs in areas of Hunger Relief, Womens’ Empowerment, Poverty Solutions, Veterans’ Needs, Elders’ Assistance, Literacy, Kids’ Needs and more. The Good People Fund is part of the solution.”
About The Good People Fund
Founded in 2008, The Good People Fund, inspired by the Jewish concept of tikkun olam (repairing the world), responds to significant problems such as poverty, disability, trauma and social isolation, primarily in the United States and Israel. The GPF provides financial support and management guidance for small to medium grassroots efforts whose grant recipients are leading their non-profits with annual budgets under $500,000 and no professional development staff, but are driven and determined to make a difference in their communities. With its guiding philosophy that small actions can have huge impacts and its emphasis on the personal connection, the GPF has raised and granted more than $7 million dollars.
