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.
The Jewish Community Federation’s work is guided by the timeless Jewish values of kehilla (community), tzedakah (giving with just intention), and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).
