Igal Silber Memorial Fund

In celebration of the life of LCAD Trustee Emeritus, Dr. Igal Silber


Dr. Igal Silber, a Laguna Beach resident for 44 years, was an active volunteer, advisor, and supporter of LCAD since 1998.

With a philanthropic heart, Dr. Silber guided the organization in building a strong Board of Directors as Chair of the Nominating Committee. In 2018, Igal and Diane created the Igal and Diane Silber Endowed Scholarship in support of talented students in the LCAD Fine Arts program who are in need of financial aid with preference given to a student who is the first in their family to attend college.

As a direct result of their generosity, LCAD students will receive much-needed financial assistance through the LCAD Scholarship Program. The mission of this program is to help minimize the financial burdens of our students so they can remain focused on finishing their degrees and becoming successful creative professionals.

Dr. Silber left an indelible mark on everyone he met. His intellect, passion for life, and concern for his fellow human beings, particularly those less fortunate, will be profoundly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
