Welcome to Tzedakah Central, the Jewish Community Foundation’s comprehensive resource center where you will find detailed information about many of the Valley’s Jewish communal organizations, agencies and synagogues. Data in Tzedakah Central will be dynamic and changing regularly so check back often to learn more about the Jewish organizations that contribute to enhancing the quality of Jewish life in the greater Phoenix area.
HOW Tzedakah Central WORKS
All local Jewish organizations are invited to have their own page on Tzedakah Central. Each organization’s page contains information about the agency’s mission, programs, professional and volunteer leadership, financial condition, their case for support and specific needs. These comprehensive agency profiles contain essential information that donors might want or need to make an informed decision about which charities merit their support.
To access these organizational profiles first find the Jewish communal organization on the list in the left column of this page. Click on the link to open their profile. In addition to the information provided by the organization you will also find a link to their IRS Form 990 which charitable organizations file annually with the Internal Revenue Service. The Form 990 is another excellent resource when researching information about charities. The organization’s website will also be shown.
We have also listed many Jewish organizations in the Valley which have not completed a Tzedakah Central profile. Those organizations are listed with basic contact information and their Form 990 and website. We look forward to more and more local Jewish communal organizations completing a Tzedakah Central profile in the future so be sure to visit here regularly.
