We provide targeted opportunities and services to donors and prospective supporters to promote philanthropic investment in our community through our Center for Jewish Philanthropy.
Our annual Community Campaign raises critical support for Jews in need locally and around the world. Of the funds raised, 65% are allocated to local partner organizations and the balance is given to national and overseas programs aiding our extended Jewish family. These funds feed the hungry, care for the sick and aged, build Jewish identity, promote arts and culture, educate and advocate—all to ensure a vibrant, connected Jewish community locally, in Israel and worldwide. Make a donation.
We hope the Community Campaign will be a key piece of everyone’s philanthropic portfolio.

Connecting Your Passions to Meaningful Impact in Our Jewish Community.

We ask you to join us as we...
Imagine...a vibrant, thriving Jewish community that offers every Jewish person locally and across the globe a safe, secure place to live and worship in dignity.
Imagine...a Seattle Jewish community that is so connected and so vibrant that people from across the country and around the world choose to live and work here.
Now imagine a Jewish community united in our vision and working together to make that vision a reality.
What's YOUR Passion?
Is your passion social services for the most vulnerable here in Seattle? Are you most interested in providing opportunities for Jewish education and camping for our children? Or are the needs of Jews in Israel and the former Soviet Union your greatest concern? You can have an extraordinary impact today and for the future through your gift.
The charts below detail your new choices for giving, showing how we will be moving our Jewish community forward through the broad Impact Areas (in blue) and specific Community Priorities (in green) as well as the goals of each community priority.
You may choose to support any or all of these with your one gift. If you have any questions, please contact us at 206.443.5400.
