2019 Grantmaking

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, in 2019 the Federation disbursed 10,050 grants from donor-advised funds and supporting foundations, totaling $175,078,668 to 2,985 nonprofit organizations. Putting these assets into community reflects the Jewish values of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedakah (taking care of the needy), kehillah (community), and tzedek (pursuing justice). These four values underpin and guide our philanthropic work, which supports a wide range of Jewish and broader causes, across local, national and international organizations.
