In Fiscal Year 2022, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia will invest more than $15 million in our community locally, in Israel and around the world. This includes grant allocations, special allocations, Jewish Federation-run programs that benefit community members like the Mitzvah Food Pantry, camp scholarships, Israel trips and more, as well as real estate support which provides agencies on our campuses free or below-market rental rates.

The Jewish Federation will distribute more than $10 million from the Jewish Community Fund and other Jewish Federation grant processes (including the Chair’s Venture Fund, JFRE Fund, Justin P. Allman President’s Fund, Weinberg Fund, Women of Vision) and special funds, all of which help support our priority areas of serving vulnerable populations, shaping our Jewish future, and connecting with Israel.

Serving Vulnerable Populations

As Jews, we are required to care for others in our community, in Israel and around the world, ensuring food security, safe housing, financial independence, and appropriate support for aging with dignity.
