Why Give Through the Federation?

Make a Difference in Jewish Lives

 

Since its inception in 1936, the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston has raised more than $100 million through our Annual Campaign. These funds have, in turn, been used to make a difference in the lives of literally millions of Jewish people in need-here in Houston, in Israel, and around the world. Last year, more than 5100 people from across the Greater Houston Jewish community fulfilled the mitzvah of tzedakah by making a tax-deductible gift to the Federation's Annual Campaign.

There are a number of ways that you can participate in the 2017 Federation Annual Campaign:

  • By making an appointment to speak personally with one of our Campaign staff or volunteers
  • By attending one of our community-wide Annual Campaign events: Collage, our special luncheon for women; Commercial Real Estate Society and more.
  • By mailing your pledge directly to the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston at 5603 S. Braeswood, Houston, TX 77096
  • By clicking on our Make a Donation link

Pledges to the 2017 Federation Annual Campaign do not have to be fulfilled until December 31, 2017. You can pay your pledge in one lump sum now, or we will be happy to bill you.
