Combined Jewish Philanthropies is the country's oldest federated philanthropy and the one upon which many others, including United Way, are modeled. The central fundraising and planning arm of Boston's Jewish community of more than 200,000, it is among the most progressive federations nationwide. Jewish communities across the U.S. look to replicate CJP's innovative model programs in adult and family education, people-to-people partnerships in Israel and in the former Soviet Union, and federation-synagogue relationships. Since 1895, CJP has created and strengthened a network of more than 80 agencies that help to nurture and educate children, maintain and strengthen family life, bring comfort and care to the elderly, sustain the Jewish community's partnership with the people of Israel and reinforce a strong connection to Jews at risk, wherever they may be. Our Annual Campaign and Endowment Fund growth enable us to allocate nearly $25 million every year, which support a wide range of human service, vocational, health care, refugee resettlement, cultural, and educational agencies in Greater Boston, in Israel and in communities around the world. Our goal is to help build a vibrant, welcoming community grounded in Jewish values of learning, caring and social justice for all.


For needs here and around the world.
