A vibrant, connected, and enduring Jewish community that is a force for good locally, in Israel, and around the world.
The Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund is a philanthropic catalyst, connecting Bay Area Jews – of all ages, backgrounds, and perspectives – to the power we have as a community to improve the world. We partner with donors, organizations, and foundations to address the pressing issues facing our community, and develop innovative strategies that result in deep and lasting impact locally, in Israel, and around the world. We accomplish this by playing three important and unique roles:
STRATEGIC INVESTING: We raise funds and make grants to support the community’s core organizations and capital projects, foster innovation, and solve big challenges that impact our local, Israeli, and worldwide Jewish communities.
BUILDING CAPACITY: We cultivate high-performing organizations through our pro bono consulting, specialized consulting and trainings, and communities of practice.
ENGAGING LEADERS AND PHILANTHROPISTS: We develop and engage Jewish leaders and philanthropists to ensure our community’s future.
Our work is guided by the timeless Jewish values of kehilla (community), tzedakah (giving with just intention), and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
