Joseph C. Mandel, a philanthropist who donated tens of millions of dollars to Jewish schools, has died at 102.

The businessman passed away at his winter Palm Beach, Florida, home Tuesday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

Along with his two brothers, Mandel co-founded the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation in 1953. The brothers have since donated millions to several schools and civic programs in their native Cleveland and around the world.

Their gifts to Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland established the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, the Mandel Center for Non-Profit Management and the Alzheimer’s Care Institute. They also funded the Mandel Center for the Humanities and the Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis University in Boston.
