About Us


What We Do

Caring through community, we work with our partners to bolster the social safety net, support innovative approaches to aging well, and enhance service and volunteerism in the Jewish community.

Inspiring Jewish life and learning by helping Jews explore and connect with Jewish life, and broadening and deepening Jewish engagement.

Strengthening Israeli society by advancing a just, pluralistic, and shared society with equal opportunity for all citizens.


Our Vision

A vibrant, caring, and enduring Jewish community that is a force for good locally, in Israel, and around the world.

Our Mission

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.

Our Values

Our work is guided by the timeless Jewish values of kehilla (community), tzedakah (giving with just intention), and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
