JFGI Mission: The Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis is the central philanthropic, planning and community relations organization of the Jewish community. The Federation and its agencies, in cooperation with the synagogues, function to promote the general welfare of the Jewish community and to ensure the creative survival and continuity of the Jewish people.
With an Annual Campaign of $3.9 million dollars and Endowment funds of approximately $85 million; the Federation supports and enriches the lives of Jews locally, nationally, in Israel, and around the world. We provide funding to a number of local and regional agencies, many national and overseas partners, and numerous independent programs that provide deeper connection and create Jewish community in Central Indiana. The Federation resides on and manages the operations of a 40-acre campus, and programs funded by the Federation create life-sustaining and life-changing impact, while inspiring and engaging members of the Indianapolis Jewish Community.
The Indianapolis Jewish Community completed its first Jewish Community Study in 2017- the results of this effort have lead us to recently publishing a strategic plan for the Jewish Federation. These two efforts will drive the focus of the Jewish Federation for the next few years.
