TOGETHER, WE ARE HEALING THE WORLD
FOR YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 2020 a
Our donor family remains at the heart of The Foundation’s work. They are partners in the truest sense of the word: Everything we do emanates from them and makes possible all we achieve.
IN A YEAR LIKE NO OTHER,
$106 MILLION in grants were distributed by our donors to the Jewish community locally and nationally, to the community at large, and to Israel.
TO OUR COMMUNITY
Our giving is always focused and intentional, although never more so than dictated by circumstances last year.
During a year of enormous challenge, The Foundation remained steadfast in fulfilling its fundamental mission – to our donors, to the vital causes and programs we help sustain, and, most essentially, to the communities we serve. When the pandemic descended virtually out of nowhere, we responded swiftly. Our Center for Designed Philanthropy conducted extensive outreach with hundreds of people to assess vast needs across the nonprofit landscape, resulting in a full pivot to our giving. We channeled nearly all our 2020 institutional grantmaking – more than $8 million and the largest amount earmarked to a single cause – into what became our COVID-19 Response Grants. Our giving is always focused and intentional, although never more so than dictated by circumstances last year. In sum, we strategically awarded more than 50 grants in multiple phases to address immediate local needs – financial, food and housing insecurity, and access to healthcare – and to sustain hard-hit nonprofits doing important work in our community and Israel. We directed $2 million – 25 percent of the total – to The Jewish Federation, which our colleagues there disbursed to assist vulnerable populations and for Jewish day school scholarships and summer camperships. Our donor family remains at the heart of The Foundation’s work. They are partners in the truest sense of the word: Everything we do emanates from them and makes possible all we achieve. This is exemplified by the $106 million in grants recommended from their funds, many to COVID-19 relief causes.
Our strategic, multilayered response is indicative of The Foundation’s core strength in mobilizing to address urgent, fast-changing community needs. This is, moreover, a testament to our dedicated, hardworking management team and staff who labored tirelessly and remotely to ensure our efforts continued uninterrupted. The impact of Foundation funding has never been more immediate. Nonprofits whose causes and programs faced unprecedented adversity expressed deep appreciation for The Foundation’s support during their time of urgent need.
Evan Schlessinger Chair, Board of Trustees
We are fortunate as well to have the wise counsel of a deeply engaged Board of Trustees. Our distinguished leaders bring a vital range of skills and resources to our grantmaking and other important institutional matters, and their contributions proved profoundly valuable this past year. It is with similar gratitude that we express sincere thanks to Bill Feiler, who recently concluded four years as our Board chair. Bill’s commitment, steady-handed leadership, and sound counsel, particularly through the pandemic, were invaluable. He remains a trustee, and we will continue to benefit from his expertise.

OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
When you open a fund with The Foundation, you also contribute to our institutional grantmaking, fueling high-impact philanthropy with the power to improve people’s lives.
When the pandemic hit in March 2020, we took a quick, deep breath, assessed the enormity of the situation, and realized it called for a wholesale reimagining of our grantmaking. We surveyed nonprofit professionals and other funders, both locally and in Israel, to understand the landscape and needs better, and then we dove in headfirst, allocating more than $8 million in the single most significant grant program we have ever undertaken. The Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Grants unfolded in three phases:
• Our immediate focus was on basic needs, and we granted $2.5 million toward efforts across our community to improve food security, housing, financial well-being, and access to healthcare.
• The next wave – $3.8 million in grants – sought to strengthen organizational stability for all segments of the Jewish community, from children to seniors, nonprofits assisting individuals with disabilities, day schools, and summer camps.
• We then allocated an additional $2 million in grants to organizations based in Israel. The breadth of our reach was directly attributable to our donors, our partners in charitable giving. When someone opens a fund with The Foundation, they also contribute to our institutional grantmaking, fueling high-impact philanthropy with the power to improve people’s lives. This was never more apparent than last year. During the pandemic, our remarkable donor family gave generously to COVID relief primarily through their Donor Advised Funds and Family Support Organizations. Working in tandem, we lifted up our community, weaving a web of steadfast support that enabled countless individuals and families to find safe harbor as they waited for better days ahead. 4

TOGETHER, WE ARE ADDRESSING RACIAL EQUITY
The pandemic brought to light the inescapable inequities people of color face in almost every aspect of our society — healthcare, education, employment opportunities, and more. Additionally, the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many others, and the summer of protests and civil unrest that followed, shined a spotlight on the pervasive systemic injustices acutely impacting Black Americans every day. As an organization committed to tikkun olam, repairing our broken world, it was important for The Foundation to acknowledge this directly through our grantmaking. After consulting with numerous prominent funders and experts in the field, in 2020 along with our COVID-19 Response Grants, The Foundation awarded grants totaling $325,000 to seven Black-led local organizations to address these inequities in multiple cause areas:
• • • • • • •
A New Way of Life Reentry Project African American Board Leadership Institute Anti-Recidivism Coalition Black Women for Wellness Jews of Color Initiative Los Angeles Brotherhood Crusade Social Justice Learning Institute
Funding supported health care for Black women and infants, job opportunities for at-risk youth and those exiting the justice system, access to quality education, and leadership opportunities for Black professionals. These nonprofits have received prior support from trusted funders and our donors, which helped inform our decision-making. Beyond that, we established criteria that included being Black-led, well-established, located in the communities they serve, and focused on providing direct services.
This grant will support our work and continued efforts in equity and opportunity for formerly incarcerated people and their children. With The Foundation’s support, we expanded our housing services with two more safehouses during the pandemic for the women we serve. Susan Burton, Founder and Executive Director, A New Way of Life Reentry Project
A New Way of Life Reentry Project provides women exiting prison (primarily women of color) with a safe, welcoming, and structured place to stay, education and employment opportunities, case management, and legal services as they reenter the community.
