Gail* and Dick Friedman

Dick and Gail Friedman both were born and raised in Cincinnati. Gail holds five advanced degrees and is a licensed Psychologist in private practice. Dick’s forty-two year career at the University of Cincinnati included serving as a member of the Department of Philosophy, as a Dean, and as the Assistant to the President. Dick has been particularly affected by his work with Holocaust survivors and is committed to doing his part to ensure the promise of “Never Again.” Gail’s mother played a significant role in her motivations to become philanthropic—this and a meaningful trip to Israel solidified her identity and motivations to live and give Jewishly. Together, Dick and Gail are committed to the notion of “tikkum olam”—making the world a better place.
