We are Embrace Foundation

Making the world a better place

Being avid animal lovers, the Gampel family is heavily involved with supporting other animal related charities and shelters. Ultimately, the purpose of this foundation is to embrace anyone, human or otherwise, that needs assistance or support. "Kindness is in human nature, we embrace it."

Embrace Foundation founders Yury and Irene Gampel were born in Soviet Ukraine and immigrated to the US at ages 7 and 12, respectively. Ever since they were little, they looked for ways of spreading kindness and helping people, and continued doing so throughout their adult years.

Their oldest daughters, Leah and Brianna, attend classes at the University of Massachusetts and University of Miami, respectively. Brianna is heavily involved in a Miami charity, Silent Victims of Crime that helps children of incarcerated parents become leaders in their community. Yael, senior at Calabasas High, volunteers at local shelters and the family’s charitable functions.

Noah, an aspiring tennis player, is continuously involved in various charities. The hardest thing for the founders was to choose one single focus area. Initially, they started by providing housing to international children who flew to the US for life-changing surgeries. They later expanded to providing meals and care packages to less fortunate families.
