What We Do

Our Vision
A vibrant, thriving Jewish community, today and tomorrow.

Our Mission
The Federation leads a strong Jewish Puget Sound by serving as a community voice, strengthening connections to Israel and World Jewry, and making investments in Jewish life for today and the next generation.


Community Voice
The Federation serves as the community's advocate in Olympia, provides local Jewish organizations access to security communications and prepardness resources from SAFE Washington, a Mark Bloome initiative, and tells the community's stories in the award-winning Jewish In Seattle magazine.

Israel and World Jewry
The Federation strengthens ties between our local community and Jewish communities around the world, by 1) ensuring Jewish families in need receive food, health care and other life essentials; and 2) helping Jews make personally meaningful connections to Israel by sponsoring extended visits of Israeli emissaries, and helping teens and young adults make journeys to Israel.

Investments in Jewish Life
The Federation invests in Jewish life for today and the next generation, by 1) supporting children's formative Jewish experiences through camp scholarships and incentive grants, and day school scholarships, 2) creating on-ramps to Jewish life that meet people where they are on their Jewish journeys, 3) leadership development, 4) community research, 5) helping Jewish organizations build endowments, and 6) stewarding individual, family and organizational endowments that are significant sources of funding for Jewish organizations.
