Making a Gift to Our Federation

By bringing our shared Jewish values to life, together we are able to change the lives of tens of thousands of people locally, in Israel and in over 70 countries around the world. Your generosity enables us to care for Jews in need, engage with the community and ensure the Jewish future for generations to come—without you, none of this is possible.

Together, we accomplish the extraordinary. Together, we are the Federation!

Jewish Federation Funding Chart

The American Institute of Philanthropy (www.charitywatch.org) states that “$35 or less to raise $100 is reasonable for most charities.” According to the Urban Institute, Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy at Indiana University, the average amount spent on fundraising in the nonprofit human services sector is 17%. They also indicate that 15% of organizations fitting this description spend more than 35% on fundraising costs. The Federation proudly exceeds both standards.
