Designate Your Gift

Working with you to align your philanthropic passions with communal priorities

As a People, our greatest strength is our ability to act collectively. An unrestricted gift to the Federation’s annual campaign is a pillar of the Jewish community, providing critical funds for our collective strength, vitality and endurance. It allows our community to work together to help care for the most vulnerable and nurture our Jewish future. This type of giving has been the bedrock of the Federation’s impact for more than 100 years.  

More than any other single Jewish organization, we have the experience, the infrastructure and the expertise to put your dollars to work wherever and whenever they are most needed – responding to today's needs and challenges, and preparing for the opportunities we will encounter tomorrow. At the same time, we recognize that the philanthropic landscape is constantly evolving and that many people are interested in directing their giving to specific programs or causes.  

We can work with you to either let the Federation apply your gift to where it’s needed most, or you can designate a portion of your gift to an area of need that is especially meaningful to you.  

To learn more about options for designating your gift, please contact Matt Youngner, the Federation’s Annual Campaign Director, at 415.369.2871.
