Your Impact

Investing in Our Community

We are pleased to share with you our 2020 Allocations Report demonstrating the power of our community and what we can achieve when we all work together. You will learn about the ways your investment in and support of the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston is making an impact here in Houston, in Israel, and around the world.

We are reimagining the way we connect with our community to create a place where every Jewish person can live a thriving Jewish life. We will continue to be the fundraising champion in our community with ongoing efforts to support Jewish people here in Houston, in Israel, and around the world, but we are also growing and evolving in other ways.

We have expanded our support of Jewish institutions and day schools through collaborative networks that provide beneficial trainings, pooled resources, and responses to specific needs. When Jewish organizations work together, the synergistic effect builds new ideas and expands opportunities. We also are reworking our engagement and outreach efforts to connect with as many people in our community as possible.

Responding to Critical Needs

The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston and the Houston Jewish Community Foundation have partnered to lead our community’s response to the pandemic through a joint COVID-19 Emergency Appeal.

To date, we have raised $3.4 million to support the urgent and basic needs of individuals and families, sustain ourcommunity institutions, and ensure the continuity of Jewish life in Houston.
