Four Funds to Support a Thriving Jewish Community
In order for our community to thrive, we need to provide an infrastructure that supports all its members in all stages of life. That means providing our children with an excellent and affordable education, one that lays the foundation for a strong Jewish identity. That means promoting Jewish culture and public affairs so that who we are as a people remains valued and relevant. It means taking care of the vulnerable, including our elders here in the Bay Area and around the world, and continuing to help Israel fulfill its promise as a nation that provides equal opportunity to all its citizens. And it means striving to innovate, so that we continue to progress as a community, and work together to address the challenges and opportunities that face us all.
By providing donors with the opportunity to direct their giving toward an area of need that is especially meaningful for them, our family of four high impact Funds helps build just such a community:
Four Funds and Donor Choice: How it Works
Community Core Fund: Ensuring a thriving community by caring for the vulnerable, promoting Jewish culture, and strengthening education and identity.
Israel and Global Fund: Strengthening Israel by advancing social justice and equal opportunity; and providing for Jews in need worldwide.
Bay Area Initiatives Fund: Addressing current community-wide challenges through targeted initiatives.
Innovation Fund: Seed-funding innovative projects in emerging and traditional Jewish organizations.
