Giving to LAU

Anan Anabtawi

Anan Anabtawi is committed to improving the lives of others.

An investor and venture capitalist, Anabtawi is highly respected as a person who cares deeply about community, development and giving back. He and his wife Taroub are generous supporters of LAU and have a particular interest in the university’s health care initiatives at the Shatila refugee camp.

Anabtawi lives in California but has close family ties to LAU. His mother, Wissam Malhas Anabtawi, graduated from BCW in 1965; and his aunt, Sahab Malhas, graduated from AJCW in 1944. There is a bench on the Beirut campus in memory of his mother. Anabtawi’s ongoing support is not only improving the lives of underprivileged members of society, but also helping LAU to better serve its students and local community.
