A gift to the Federation provides unrestricted funds to meet urgent, ongoing humanitarian and social service needs of the global Jewish people, to encourage and support Jewish education and Jewish community, and to strengthen the relationship between Jews in the East Bay and the Israeli people.

Part of your gift remains right in your own community, helping to strengthen local partner Jewish agencies, who are innovative providers of programs to safeguard and enhance Jewish life at home. Part goes to meet overseas needs through our partners, the Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. These dollars help build the Jewish homeland and rebuild strong Jewish communities in over 60 countries around the world.
