2018 Community Service Award Finalist
Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County
Drowos Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors
Bryan Drowos has had a transformative influence on the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, where he has served as an outstanding young leader for twelve years and quickly rose within the organization as a key fundraiser, event chair and national speaker. The Federation seeks to raise funds to allocate to organizations which help people in need in the South Palm Beach county community, across the nation and in over 80 countries around the world. Bryan’s work with the Federation has taken him to Ethiopia to help 58 Jewish community members relocate their families to Israel and to Mumbai, where he met with a small group of leaders to discuss educational, food and hygiene programs for those living in slums.
As a past local and national young leadership chair, Bryan was responsible for training emerging leaders and philanthropists within the Jewish community and raising the profile of the Jewish Federation’s mission. He is a current member of the board of directors, executive committee, and a regular solicitor of major gifts for the organization. He has secured millions of dollars for programming, including charing an event which raised over $1 million in a single night. Bryan and his wife, Joanna, lead by example both in terms of their financial support for the Jewish Federation and by their hands-on service supporting those in need in their community.
