The family has contributed over many decades to the California College of the Arts (formerly the California School of Arts and Crafts), Stanford University, Harvard University, Dartmouth College, The Branson School, and several other local secondary schools.

For eight years, Mr. Weisel served on the Stanford Endowment Management Board, 2001-2009. He also served on the Harvard Business School Advisory Board from 2007-2009. Mr. Weisel is currently on the Harvard Business School Northern California Advisory Council.

From 1996 to 1997, Mr. Weisel co-chaired the Capital Campaign for the School of Arts and Crafts to build their San Francisco campus. He believes in the CCAC’s mission and thinks the institution plays a useful purpose for aspiring artists and designers. The family made a lead gift to that campus building, which has a hall named after it. In addition, Mr. Weisel organized support for the expansion through his role at Montgomery Securities, and the downtown campus signage bears the Montgomery name.
