The Jewish Community Fund is the core of the Jewish Federation’s Annual Campaign, our main source of unrestricted dollars to take care of our own communities and help those in need locally, in Israel and around the world.

When you give to the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, your gift is pooled with thousands of others, accomplishing what no individual could do on their own. Together we bring dignity, hope and joy to vulnerable populations every day, ensuring that Jewish social services remain strong here in Philadelphia, in Israel and around the world. We enrich and enhance the lives of Jews at home and abroad.

Responding to Urgent Needs

Your donation to the Jewish Community Fund enables the Jewish Federation to make funding decisions based on the most urgent needs and priorities of the day. We carefully evaluate applications from dozens of organizations, making grants to those who most closely match our mission and who are capable of making the biggest impact. And we are able to meet pressing needs at a moment’s notice.

The Power of the Annual Campaign

The Jewish Community Fund is at the core of what we do, providing essential, unrestricted dollars for the organizations that provide amazing services to our community and to those in need around the world.

It’s a promise that Jewish social services and vibrant community organizations will remain strong and active for all of us. And for you. It’s an opportunity to be part of a caring community that gives back, and to foster and celebrate Jewish identity for future generations.
