Scott Anderson has been hired as vice president of Philanthropy for the Sarasota-based Jewish Housing Council Foundation and will start in July. Anderson has served as Gulf Coast Community Foundation’s senior philanthropic advisor for most of the last decade. “This is the perfect place to start the next chapter of my life,” Anderson said. “I have been involved at the Board level and have a thorough grasp on the direction The Jewish Housing Council Foundation should take to support the mission and vision of the organization. The plans for campus enhancements will benefit current and future residents. I am excited to be a part of making the vision a reality.”


Jewish Housing Council Foundation provides financial support for Kobernick-Anchin-Benderson, a rental senior community in Sarasota offering a full continuum of care. CEO Heidi Brown said Anderson’s arrival comes just as the organization launches new programs and invests $1.5 million in renovations and enhancements. “We’re also poised to expand the campus to include other models of independent living and adult day care services,” she said. “Scott’s philanthropic reach and expertise will help us continue to raise the standard in senior living and care. He brings to us his love for the Kobernick-Anchin-Benderson campus and its residents, his deep knowledge of our nonprofit community and enormous enthusiasm for programs that benefit older adults.”
