Savannah Jewish Federation
The Savannah Jewish Federation is charged with the mission to "advance the welfare of the total Jewish community." Through its Annual Campaign, the Federation is the primary collector and distributor of funds for Jewish causes for Savannah and the surrounding areas. We oversee the distribution of approximately $2,000,000 annually, including Federation allocations to beneficiary agencies in Savannah and around the world, grants through the Jewish Community Foundation of Savannah and financial assistance to the needy.
Locally, the Federation allocates fund to the Jewish Educational Alliance; Shalom School - the primary provider of Jewish education; Jewish Family Services - the lifeline agency for social services and emergency funds for the most vulnerable members of our community; Bnai Brith Youth Organization and Hillel - for Jewish socialization opportunities for the younger members of our community; and others.
The Savannah Jewish Federation also operates the Jewish Community Foundation of Savannah, which was established to ensure the future of our community. The Foundation is creating the financial foothold that will keep the Savannah Jewish community strong and vibrant for generations to come through a series of endowments and investments.
