Annual Allocation

The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston is the leader in mobilizing the community response to the local and global needs of the Jewish people. Our mission is to preserve and enrich Jewish communal life through innovative and visionary leadership that is responsive and responsible to Jewish communities locally, nationally, in Israel and around the world. 

We fund programs that strengthen our people, advocate on behalf of our shared values, and educate every generation to ensure our traditions endure. By supporting our community at all levels, the Federation enhances Jewish continuity and sustains each of us. 

Through the support of our generous donors, the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston (JFGH) is pleased to offer funding to support organizations and programs that serve the Jewish community of Houston, Israel and around the world. 

Grants are available via three funds:
