The Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund (the Federation) of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties 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 a deep and lasting impact.

Our vision is a vibrant, connected, and enduring Jewish community that is a force for good locally, in Israel, and around the world. Our work is guided by the timeless Jewish values of kehilla (community), tzedakah (giving with just intention), and tikkun olam (repairing the world).

The Federation seeks highly motivated individuals with a variety of skill sets to build the next generation of Federation engagement. We are especially interested in forward-thinking, collaborative, and open-minded candidates who are willing to take risks, possess a high level of integrity, and model a positive attitude that inspires confidence.


The Federation helps donors make their philanthropy more effective. Through the generosity of about 1,000 donors, the Federation grants over $200 million a year, both locally and globally, to a variety of secular and Jewish causes. Federation Philanthropy Partners works with these clients, who all have unique situations and varying degrees of need for our guidance.  Our aim is to be a trusted advisor, and to inform, educate, inspire, and challenge philanthropy driven by Jewish values, and the philanthropists in our communities. 


The Federation seeks a Marketing Manager who will develop and implement a marketing plan for Federation Philanthropy Partners aimed at acquiring new donors, retaining existing donors, both directly and through their financial advisors. This work will support the implementation of a growth strategy that has the goal of becoming a preeminent philanthropy practice in the Jewish world, a trusted advisor to generations of Jewish philanthropists, and a pacesetter in philanthropy.
