When you give to any of the following funds through JCF, you help us fulfill our mission to build a permanent source of financial support for a vibrant, enduring Jewish community.
Support the Jewish Community Foundation
Your gift to the JCF enables us to award grants each year to programs and services locally and in Israel that our grants committee determines are most deserving or most in need.
Contribute to an Existing JCF Fund
Add to your donor advised fund or endowment, or contribute to a fund established by someone else. You can even contribute to a teen’s B’nai Tzedek fund. This can be a meaningful way to honor or memorialize a loved one, or to commemorate a special occasion.
Jewish Women’s Endowment Fund
Established in 2000 by a visionary group of concerned women, the Jewish Women’s Endowment Fund is dedicated to fostering social change by funding projects to expand and improve opportunities and choices in all aspects of the lives of Jewish women and girls.
B’nai Tzedek Operating Fund
Each year, B’nai Tzedek members develop a unique mission statement, funding priorities, and grantmaking recommendations to the causes they care about and to any particular needs of the community they identify during that year. The Youth Philanthropy Board awards grants to organizations and programs that align with the annual B’nai Tzedek mission. Giving to the B’nai Tzedek Fund enables young philanthropists to learn and practice the skills of strategic grantmaking.
Help New Teens Establish Funds: The Jewish Community Foundation is committed to fostering this next generation of dedicated, caring philanthropists. There are families for whom the fund minimum of $500 is just too much. Each year, we confidentially add to funds so that each teen has a fund of at least $500. We firmly believe that all teens who wish to be philanthropists should have the opportunity to do so.
