Ernest Auerbach sought throughout his life to share his good fortune with a wider world. An active philanthropist with his wife, he was a benefactor to many local instituations. He was a firm believer that one was obligated to give back generously to the community that enriched him (or her) and that no one succeeded on his own without the help and support of others. He mentored many young people in the real estate industry and gave generously and regularly to multiple philanthropies.
