The Vision of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is to have a thriving, vibrant, and engaged Jewish Community. In order to accomplish this we raise and allocate funds and build community locally, in Israel, and around the world.
As the preeminent resource for all donor and provider services in philanthropy, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is at the heart of Jewish giving. Giving care to those in need, giving deeper engagement in quality of life, and giving strength to the community, in Pittsburgh, Israel and around the world. Since 1912, the Federation has funded programs that care for people at every stage of life - strengthening community, providing leadership and nurturing the leaders of tomorrow.
The work of the Federation is made possible through various philanthropic giving opportunities including, but not limited to, the Annual Community Campaign, planned giving and endowments, government and outside foundation grants, supplemental (project-based) giving, capital gifts and corporate sponsorship.
