You generously make a donation to our Federation Annual Campaign, but then where exactly do your dollars go? Your donation helps to support four major areas of work: Community, Jewish Identity, Israel and Overseas, and Vulnerable Populations.
The Federation can’t do all this work alone, so it allocates money from the Annual Campaign to various agencies and organizations who help to do the work. Our handy graph will tell you in which areas of work some of our organizations or agencies falls. Refer to the key below to get a sampling of the work they do.
