Gail Wasserman was born and raised in New York until she moved to Delray Beach a decade ago. She has devoted her life to being a relentless advocate for those without the power or resources to enrich their lives and achieve their potential. Her immense success in the business world over the last several decades and her work with industry leaders has allowed her to channel her brilliant business skills into aiding non-profits that need high level business strategy and expertise. She is focused on transforming society’s passive approach to philanthropy to one of enthusiastic activism.
She proudly serves on the Board of Directors for the Unicorn Children’s Foundation and has taken on an integral role over the past few years in championing the organization’s mission and raising awareness regarding neurodevelopmental disorders. Gail is passionate in her belief that all children, regardless of their circumstances, be given the same opportunities to pursue and attain their dreams. Her goal is to build a better world by positively changing the life of each and every child in the hope that the ripple effects will replicate exponentially.
Gail is also a proponent of enriching lives through music and art. She believes that while we need to nurture the physical and intellectual aspects of our being, we must not neglect our souls. As such, she serves on the Miami City Ballet Board of Trustees and is a major benefactor of the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson World Performing Arts Center, The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Boca Raton Museum of Art as a Member of the Collectors Forum, Benefactor Circle and Art Matters Sponsor. Gail is a Music Program founder at the Florence Fuller Child Development Center and she sponsors five students at the A. W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts so that they can pursue their artistic endeavors.
Gail not only drives efforts for children, arts and music, but is a staunch supporter of women’s health and wellness and has been a significant benefactor to the Christine E. Lynn’s Women’s Health and Wellness Institute. In her desire to help all members of society, she also serves as an Advisory Board member at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation and mobilized her resources to support the volunteers and first responders after tragic fires and mudslides affected the Montecito area. She also sponsored the family of conjoined twins Jaden and Anias McDonald at the Montefiore Medical Center in NYC through a year long ordeal of medical procedures and care that led to them being safely separated by Dr. Goodrich and Dr. Tepper.
Gail’s extraordinary philanthropic efforts are a result of her belief that true fulfillment in life comes not only from what we attain for ourselves, but from how we have empowered others to transform their lives.
