b'Our Jewish community is different than it was in the past. When our organizations were founded over 100 years ago, there was no Bay Bridge. It made sense to have distinct entities in the East Bay and in San Francisco. However, our 2017 Portrait of Bay Area Jewish Life and Communities revealed a highly mobile, transient Jewish community. Overall, 29% reported that they will definitely or probably move in the next two years. And of those planning to move, 45% will move within the Bay Area. Today, we need more collaboration, more networking, and more cross-bay communication. As a result, in 2019, The Jewish Federation and Jewish Community Foundation of the East Bay, and the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund, announced that we were coming together in order to better serve the Bay Area Jewish community. This involved both integration of services and operations, expansion of the San Francisco-based Federations services to the East Bay community, and retention of the East Bay office and several professionals.This integration is also reinforced by a history of effective cross-bay collaboration. We previously launched a joint initiative to provide professional development to every teen educator, created the Community Fund for Synagogue Security, and raised more than $1.1 million for North Bay Wildfire relief. Our coming together marks the next evolution of collaboration between our organizations.Major Highlights from Our First Year of East Bay-West Bay IntegrationSuccessful integration of Jewish Community Federation and Jewish Community Foundation of the East BayMoved Jewish Community Foundations back-end operations and $150 million in donor-advised fund assets that serve the philanthropy of 160 donors Maintained East Bay office and two senior philanthropy advisorsRetained nearly 100% of East Bay fundholdersIntegrated and expanded the Federations Services into the East BayIntegrated the East Bay Sprout initiative (which encompasses PJ Library, PJ Our Way, and Youth and Family Concierge services) into the Federations PJ Library program, now called PJ Library Bay Area 24'
