Vision for Chazan-Leipzig Consulting


To help organizations streamline and maximize their operations and financial resource development utilizing skills acquired as an executive, as the Senior Vice President for Financial Resource Development at the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science (ACWIS) and as the Senior Philanthropic Advisor for American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (AABGU).

We are committed to your organization's success in major gift financial resource development, board effectiveness, strategy, professional staff mentoring, planning and administration.


During, Jay Leipzig's 5 years with AABGU and almost 10 years with ACWIS, he has helped the institutions raise in excess of $1 billion dollars.  He has personally been involved or leading a team that has raised over $120 million at ACWIS in one year and over $25 Million at AABGU.  The funds have been raised in direct gifts/pledges or with sophisticated planned giving techniques.

In addition to supervision of major gift fundraising leaders, he has supervised key staff in planned giving, grant writing, direct mail and prospect research.  Planned giving is an often overlooked component of major gift fundraising and it is an area that can help your organization exceed prior fundraising expectations.  Marketing via advertising, direct mail and the internet are also areas where my advice can make a difference.

He has successfully recruited and hired major gift fundraisers and evaluated their performance.  He has developed job descriptions and evaluation tools and have been responsible for training major gift fundraisers.
