Mobilizes innovation, collaboration, and investment to shape diverse and dynamic Bay Area Jewish communities, who work together to better lives and communities locally, in Israel, and around the world.
FederationsBased on the traditions of tzedakah (righteous behavior) and communal responsibility, the Jewish Federations are volunteer-based, nonprofit organizations that raise funds to support social services, culture and education. As umbrella agencies, the Federations allocate dollars in their geographic areas, Israel and elsewhere around the world. Federations play an important role in community planning and leadership development. In addition, Federation endowment funds help to ensure the financial security of the Jewish community.
Supporting the Jewish community for over 100 years, the Federation partners with donors, organizations, and foundations to address the pressing issues facing our community.
The Federation’s Israel office supports innovative programs working to build and sustain a pluralistic, democratic, and shared society with equal opportunity for all.
