Vision A vibrant, connected, and enduring Jewish community that is a force for good locally, in Israel, and around the world. Mission 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. Values: Our work is guided by the timeless Jewish values of kehilla (community), tzedakah (giving with just intention), and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
We address issues that strengthen our entire community – like helping to build young leaders in the Bay Area, in Israel, and around the world. Here at home we build young leaders and philanthropists through a continuum of engagement programs.Just a couple of examples: Our Jewish Teen Foundations have transformed 500 teens into young philanthropists who have granted $1 million to nonprofits here in the Bay Area and around the world. Our Young Adult affinity group engages thousands of young people each year through a variety of events and meaningful service opportunities. Both these things demonstrate the power of our community to join together to make a bigger difference.
