Why We Give

For over 5,000 years, Jewish teaching have emphasized the importance of Tzedakah (Hebrew for charity).  Unlike voluntary giving, Tzedakah is considered an ethical and moral obligation to give regardless of one’s financial resources

To Whom We Give

The simple answer: You, the community.  We provide funding to agencies and organizations that meet the basic needs of the less fortunate, as well as projects and initiatives that benefit the community, the state and in some cases our nation

LEADERSHIP REFLECTIONS

Community is Imperative

Community is defined by Webster as “a social, religious, occupational, or other group sharing common characteristics or interests and perceived or perceiving itself as distinct in some respect from the larger society within which it exists”

During this time, community is imperative.  It is our common belief of helping one another and doing our part for the benefit of the whole that will get us through this trying time.  Throughout our annual grant cycles, I am overcome by the sincere compassion and empathy that our community’s not-for-profits share, along with the generosity of our members.  It is the power of many that will provide us the strength to endure.  READ MORE >>
