FY2016. Good Works. Big Impact. Awesome Generosity. JEWISHcolorado is proud to report on the many ways we have impacted the local and international Jewish communities during the past year. Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 is the second year in a row we set a record for overall Financial Resource Development (FRD). The beneficiaries of these dollars demonstrate our proud commitment to SMECA: To Secure, Mobilize, Engage, Care, and Advocate, on behalf of our Jewish community. In just the last year, our Young Adult Department (YAD) engaged more than 2,500 people in dynamic programming, including social events, networking, and learning opportunities. Our YAD Family Shabbat touched more than 400 new families, many of whom have come regularly to programs connecting with good friends and finding meaning in celebrating Shabbat with community. YAD programming focuses on a three-tiered, “Live, Give, Lead” strategy for young Jewish adults in their 20’s and 30’s. We are proud to say that it is by far the largest engager of this demographic in Colorado. YAD is just one of the many JEWISHcolorado programs that is growing and expanding in response to community input. Details about our many other programs can be found on pages 9-15.

“YAD empowers young adults to connect with the Jewish community, have fun and give back. To me, it is the place where we are inspiring strong leadership connections and lifelong friendships” - Whitney Chotin Wolz, Chair, Young Adult Department


THE PAST 365 DAYS HAVE TESTED US, INSPIRED US AND MOTIVATED US TO DO MORE. A Message from JEWISHcolorado’s Leadership As our organization enters its 70th year of strong communal representation, we are also proud to be 3 years young. Our Reimagining process continues to take root and is a powerful guide as we make the decisions that will shape our organization and our community in the coming year. It is my pleasure to be the new chair of the Board of Directors, and I welcome your ideas and your passion as we embark on this new year. Diana Zeff Anderson, incoming JEWISHcolorado Board Chair

As I reflect on the last year, I am extremely proud of the dollars we raised and the lives that were touched by our work. I am excited about our organization’s clear vision for the future. It has been an honor to serve as your board chair, and I look forward to continuing to work together to enrich our Jewish community. Amy Toltz-Miller, outgoing JEWISHcolorado Board Chair

This was a challenging year for many Jewish communities around the world. Increased levels of violence and anti-Semitism reminded us of the importance of Klal Yisrael – our interconnectedness as a people, and the necessity of our organization’s role to help secure the future. We take this responsibility very seriously, and invite you to join us in our important effort to secure and mobilize our community. There is great work to be done! Doug Seserman, JEWISHcolorado President and CEO

Highlights from the Last Year JEWISHcolorado raised a record $22.4 million in FY2016, marking the second year in a row of unprecedented fundraising success. Colorado became the 4th state in the nation to pass anti-BDS legislation, thanks to hard work by JEWISHcolorado’s Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and strong bipartisan support.

JEWISH COMMUNITY RELATIONS COUNCIL

The annual Walk for Israel nearly doubled in size, as more than 2,200 community members came together in downtown Denver to demonstrate solidarity and proud support of Israel.

2

JEWISHcolorado and Colorado Agency for Jewish Education (CAJE) agreed to a formal merger. The combined organization now offers a broader range of programming, while providing a savings to the community of approximately $175,000/year. Our Christmas Mitzvah Project brought together more than 250 members of the community who volunteered in organizations around Denver, making sure our non-Jewish friends could spend the holiday with their friends and family.


ABOUT JEWISHcolorado 70 Years Strong + 3 Years Young On May 23, 1946, JEWISHcolorado was organized as a non-profit corporation. 70 years later, JEWISHcolorado continues to serve as the umbrella fundraising, community building, and strategic planning organization for the local Jewish community. JEWISHcolorado raises and distributes dollars to support Jewish life in Colorado, Israel and around the world. We are a proud member of Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), along with 148 other “federations” and over 300 independent network communities. JEWISHcolorado honors its rich history, but we also recognized that “what got us here, wasn’t going to us there.” In order to be relevant and sustainable, we needed to bridge our 20th century organization into the 21st century. We needed to be more meaningful and to adapt to the ever-changing priorities of our

constituents. In 2010, we began a comprehensive strategic planning process to reimagine our organization for the future. This “reimagining” process concluded with a name change to JEWISHcolorado and a reinvigorated approach. We are now three years “young” as a reimagined organization. We have worked hard to better reflect what the community told us was important to them by streamlining our operations, narrowing our focus, and prioritizing how we steward limited resources. As we look forward to the next 70 years, we are committed to meeting the current needs of the Jewish community while securing the future for the next generation.

SMECA is Our Guide We Have Two Powerful Mission Objectives.

SECURE We SECURE, steward, and share philanthropic and human resources.

MOBILIZE We MOBILIZE the community in times of need.

Our Programs and Grantmaking are Focused on Three Key Areas.

ENGAGE We ENGAGE the next generation in being Jewish.

CARE We CARE for those who are vulnerable.

ADVOCATE We support Israel and ADVOCATE for the Jewish world.

SMECA is the process for being ordained as a Rabbi and means blanket in Hebrew. This speaks to the unique nature and role of our work. In essence, we wrap our arms around, and cover, our local and global Jewish community. 3


SECURING PHILANTHROPIC RESOURCES

JEWISHcolorado is committed to “Helping Today and Securing Tomorrow” by raising resources through multiple revenue streams. This is known as total Financial Resource Development, FRD.

The Annual Campaign The Annual Campaign is the vehicle through which JEWISHcolorado helps to support the current operating needs and priorities of the Jewish community.

Unrestricted Funding (Flagship Fund)

The Flagship Fund supports JEWISHcolorado’s Strategic Alliance partnerships, value-added community programs, internal operations, and external grantmaking to other Jewish organizations.

Jco Restricted Funding

Restricted Non-Allocable Funding

JEWISHcolorado also enables donors to make charitable contributions to Jewish 501c3 organizations locally, nationally, and internationally with no overhead or administrative fees.

Endowment & Planned Giving Endowment & Planned Giving speaks to the “securing tomorrow” aspect of our business.

This type of philanthropic planning is a proactive affirmation of a donor’s values and legacy. JEWISHcolorado currently houses $80.1 million in total assets under management and anticipated gifts. Our goal is to exceed $100 million in the next few years. Current assets are made up of the following: • •

IMPACT 2016

OUR STRATEGIC ALLIANCES MAKE US STRONGER, MORE CONNECTED AND BETTER FOCUSED ON OUR JEWISH COMMUNITY.

In FY2016 We Had Strategic Alliances with CAJE and UJA Aspen Valley CAJE

In mid-July, the Colorado Agency for Jewish Education (CAJE) and JEWISHcolorado board members voted unanimously to merge into a single entity. The combined organization will offer a full range of programming for all ages, create efficiencies for both organizations and for the community, and is expected to reap approximately $175,000 in annual savings. CAJE is now the educational division of JEWISHcolorado, and Phyllis Adler, executive director of CAJE, will be expanding her role to include the oversight of most of the JEWISHcolorado programming as well.

UJA Aspen Valley

Our of partnership with UJA Powered by Aspen Valley continues to be a success. Through our partnership, JEWISHcolorado provides professional support via back office administration and a “front office” push in the Annual Campaign. Fundraising was up 11% vs. FY2015, to $372,478, and we continue to look for innovative ways to grow the relationship.

Welcome to Our Newest Strategic Alliance Ramat HaNegev

We are excited to have formalized our 15 year partnership with Ramat HaNegev with an official strategic alliance that brings Israel to Colorado and Colorado to Israel. As a strategic alliance, Ramat HaNegev will continue to benefit from JEWISHcolorado’s efforts to promote tourism to and support for the region. JEWISHcolorado and Ramat HaNegev will continue to exchange cultural and other resources that allow for Ramat HaNegev to flourish and attract young families to move there. Our strategic alliance supports the Center for Children with Special Needs, young adult programs, and Nitzana, a cutting edge educational center that fosters environmentalism, tolerance, and self-confidence. Nitzana is home to Ramat Negev many JAFI social activism projects. Regional Council Ramat HaNegev is every Coloradoan’s home in Israel

JEWISHcolorado is the only organization in the local Jewish community working on behalf of the entire Jewish world. This is primarily accomplished through external grants to local and overseas partners in support of programs that fall within our areas of impact.

External Grants= $1,467,000 Local PIN Funding - Programs with Impact and Need = $669,000

In addition to community support funding, we make external grants to local agencies. The PIN model enables JEWISHcolorado to “fill the gap” between revenues already generated for the program and what the program actually costs. PIN grants are funded from dollars historically used for allocations. Each year, grant funding is recommended through a volunteer led process and approved by JEWISHcolorado’s Board of Directors.
