Our Goals

Creating a life of meaning and connection inspired by Jewish values

Promoting More and Better Jewish Philanthropy 

We  give our donors and fundholders the 21st-century tools and investment opportunities to enable each individual and family to maximize the impact of their philanthropy, both within and beyond the Jewish community. This includes building a more unified structure within our organization, along with an increased focus on gift planning and collaborative giving opportunities, such as impact investing.

Increasing Engagement in Jewish Life

We work alongside partners to create a sense of belonging and meaning in the Jewish community, focusing our efforts on people that our community study revealed to have the lowest levels of connection: youth and teens, young adults, and families with young children, as well as those who feel excluded, such as interfaith families and Jews of Color. We build on gateways of activities and work with organizations and funders to offer new approaches that are connecting young people with Jewish life.

Fostering Resilient and Secure Jewish Communities 

We provide our Jewish communal organizations with the resources and capacities they need to be resilient, adapting to environmental shifts, withstanding adversity, and ensuring the well-being of all members of our community. We fund efforts to enhance physical and psychological safety at Jewish institutions, lead unique programs to support strong leadership for the Bay Area Jewish community, uphold organizations that build connection and solidarity among groups in Israel, and support organizations advocating and serving those most underserved, both locally and around the world.
