What is the Federation Annual Campaign?

The Federation Annual Campaign is our Jewish community’s central fundraising initiative. It provides the financial resources to support much-needed programs and services that touch countless lives locally, in Israel, and throughout the world.


Funds from the campaign support programs and services delivered by more than 35 partner agencies, all working to meet the needs of our local community as well as those in Israel and around the world. Jewish Federation works closely with community partners to identify current, emerging and new needs, then directs funds to where they are needed most. Leare more about the campaign here.
