Voices of Giving: Richard Weiland
In over 50 years of service, Dick Weiland has been responsible for raising more funds for the Jewish Federation and for the welfare of the Greater Cincinnati Jewish community than any other single individual. While just in his mid-twenties, he assumed a leadership role in the community's annual campaign and co founded the Young Leadership Cabinet. After decades on the Federation Board, he continues active service as a lifetime emeritus member. Ten years ago, Dick and his late wife, Marsha, established a permanent endowment fund to support members of the Jewish community with disabilities, creating living situations specifically designed to enhance their independence and ensure their dignity and quality of life. In 2010, Dick made an additional bequest commitment to endow the Federation’s ''Create Your Jewish Legacy'' initiative. With this gift, Dick continues to inspire many others to make legacy gifts to causes they most believe in and to make Cincinnati a better place.
