Shared values, vision and focus guide our present and drive our future In commemorating our centennial, the Federation’s dedicated network of lay leaders, professionals and donors responded with energy and creativity in 2010. There was a shared sense of reinvigoration, and our work this past year was marked by innovation and progress. We have achieved a significant milestone and we have much to be proud of. Despite a slowly recovering economy in 2010, our donors contributed nearly $24 million to the 2010 Annual Campaign and $30 million additional dollars to the Endowment Fund. As Jewish needs locally and around the globe remain pressing, we also remain committed to the most vulnerable members of our community, whether meeting basic needs of the poor or elderly, providing access to quality education for our children, or supporting social equality and pluralism in Israel. Working side by side with the Bay Area Jewish community, we have made a collective impact. As in so many aspects of life, a key driver of success is focus. Our Federation has undertaken a comprehensive strategic planning effort: We have determined that by focusing our core competencies, and playing a role for which we are uniquely suited, our ability to meet the challenges and opportunities facing our community now and into the future will be strengthened. We have taken a proactive position, bringing about new and diverse approaches into our fold - strategic advising to improve nonprofit effectiveness, inventive programming that addresses community-wide challenges, and valuable leadership and volunteer opportunities that help us engage the next generation of Jews, all while continuing to build a welcoming and inclusive society. We look to the future with great optimism, confrontingchallenges with a strong network of local Jewish institutions, dedicated leadership, and a remarkable record of generosity and activism that has made the San Francisco Jewish Community Federation a model to emulate. History proves our strength lies in our unity. One hundred years ago, Jewish settlers could never have imagined the progress their efforts would produce. Today, we’re shaping the world that our children will inherit using the same Jewish values that guided ourforebears as our compass – kehilla (community), tzedakah (righteous giving), and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Thank you for partnering with us in your philanthropy.

Donor Advised Philanthropic Funds



Supporting Foundations




The Jewish Community Endowment Fund’s role as the community’s philanthropic engine and reserve was made all the more clear in this difficult time. The resources of the Endowment Fund were granted to meet unprecedented needs, protecting those most vulnerable in our community while continuing to fund critical projects locally, nationally, in Israel and worldwide. With nearly $1.6 billion held in over 900 donor advised philanthropic funds and 45 supporting foundations, donors recommended more than 8,900 grants to approved charities in their areas of interest.




Resources from the Bay Area Jewish community provide the foundation for a vibrant Jewish life. This year Endowment Fund grants are helping pay for the construction of new homes for the Hillel at Davis/Sacramento and the Hillel of Silicon Valley. Endowment resources are also supporting the modernization of Camp Tawonga’s facilities located in the Stanislaus National Forest and the establishment of a permanent endowment for the new Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, currently under construction in downtown Berkeley. This new cultural and educational hub will showcase Magnes’ preeminent collections of art, texts, music, and historical artifacts from Jews in the American West and the Global Diaspora.

Visionary philanthropists, mainly through bequests in their wills and lifetime gifts, have left the Jewish Community Endowment Fund unrestricted assets that now exceed $68,000,000. These represent the community’s most essential funds for three purposes: responding to emergencies, seed-funding new initiatives, and providing capital grants for important new projects.

The Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund (the Federation) plays a leading role in strengthening Israeli society and securing its future by promoting pluralism, democracy, and equality of opportunity for all Israel's citizens. Our flagship programs aim at achieving system-wide social change, while our smaller grants focus on developing entrepreneurship and providing incubators for

PROVIDING A BETTER FUTURE FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN IN ISRAEL Bakehila (”In the Community”) runs educational programming in disadvantaged neighborhoods of Jerusalem that raises student academic achievement and promotes personal and social growth. By helping these children achieve their full potential, the program works to break the cycle of poverty.

Olim B'yachad (”Rising up Together”) is helping Ethiopian-Israeli university graduates and students find good jobs which help them integrate into Israeli society. In addition to job placement, the year-long program includes individual support and mentoring as well as English tutoring. With an established network of 250 committed, well-known companies and business leaders, the program has achieved remarkable success — placing 90% of the graduates in jobs commensurate with their training and education.

Our funds cover a portion of operations at the Leket Work Project in Israel which employs Israeli Arab women to collect excess produce left behind by farmers that would otherwise go to waste. The program distributes more than 825 pounds of produce per day to Israel’s needy. And the women, who previously suffered exploitation at the hands of work contractors, receive social and health benefits and are paid a fair wage.

SUPPORTING OUR YOUTH The Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance Youth Project offers LGBTQ and questioning youth a safe space in which to address their sexual and gender identities, a sense of belonging, and a support system that can become a lifeline. The program provides LGBTQ youth critical support and unbiased information in their personal journey of self-discovery, helps secure LGBTQ rights in Israeli society, and bridges political, ethnic and religious boundaries in order to build and unite a community in pursuit of the common goal of tolerance and mutual support.

STRENGTHENING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SECULAR AND RELIGIOUS ISRAELIS Through the Gvanim (“hues of a color”) program, secular Israelis explore Jewish values, traditions and culture, and religious Israelis learn about non-Orthodox expressions of Judaism. Each year, 15 leaders from diverse professional and religous backgrounds attend an intensive educational program that includes a visit to the Bay Area to showcase the broad array of Jewish life in our community. Participants return to Israel as change agents, developing "action programs" that build a pluralistic approach to Jewish identity across the country – in schools and community centers, among the business community's leadership, in the media, and in the army. The resulting ripple effect helps create social change at the system-wide level.

Innovation is the ability to see Inno Innov unity. nity. change as an opportunity.


Guided by a century of Jewish values, we help our donors harness the power of communal giving and infuse their philanthropy with meaning. The Federation has a long history of creating impact in our community by being innovative. We finance ground-breaking programs and services, foster leadership, construct funding strategies and provide vital, life-changing resources for individuals, families and Jewish institutions. By partnering with our local community, we work together to transform innovative ideas into meaningful plans of action.

The Community Legacy Project (CLP) is a partnership between the Federation and a diverse group of synagogues, JCCs, day schools, social service and cultural organizations that provides the leadership of these organizations with the training, tools, and investment strategies they need to secure their financial future through bequests and other planned gifts.

CONNECTING YOUNG ADULTS TO THEIR JEWISH IDENTITY The waiting list for Birthright Israel – the international program that takes Jewish young adults on free trips to Israel – just got shorter. Through a $120,000 grant earmarked for local participants, 40 additional Bay Area students will have the opportunity to visit Israel for the first time, ensuring that youth who have been previously turned away from the program due to high demand, will now have a chance to experience and develop connections to their Jewish heritage.

ENGAGING YOUNG DONORS AND SUPPORTING INNOVATIVE LOCAL IDEAS To provide donors with a higher level of engagement and at the same time, support local innovative proposals with the potential to generate significant community impact, The Federation launched the Impact Grants Initiative. A venture philanthropy styled program that provides a “hands-on” approach to grantmaking. The first round of this initiative will provide $1M in funding to grow new programs that engage adults between 21 and 45 years of age in Jewish life.

- Albert Einstein

PROVIDING A GATEWAY FOR FAMILY ENGAGEMENT IN THE JEWISH COMMUNITY In partnership with the Jim Joseph Foundation, the Early Childhood Education Initiative (ECEI) engages Bay Area Jewish families with young children in meaningful Jewish life and community. Recognized in the Bay Area as a center of best practice in Jewish education for children, teachers and families, the ECEI promotes ground-breaking programs, publicizes preschool and camp scholarships, creates the model for recruiting, training, and retaining high potential Jewish educators in the field, and advocates for a level of compensation that reflects the importance of their profession.

PARTNERING WITH SYNAGOGUES Our Bay Area neighborhood synagogues continue to be a welcoming gateway to generations who value Judaism’s traditions, rich in ceremony and meaning. That’s why the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund continues to partner with them on programs that help strengthen Jewish identity, support education and provide inspirational cultural activities. The Synagogue Federation Partnership is a collaboration with 30+ Bay Area synagogues to encourage broader participation within our community and bolster long-term economic sustainability of these institutions.

The Federation provides portals of Jewish engagement for people of all ages and from all walks of life. For young people in particular, there are myriad ways to participate in the Jewish community and connect with each other. The Young Adult Division (YAD) holds entertaining events, promotes volunteerism, and offers leadership development programs. The Young Funders Forum provides a continuum of philanthropic education and networking opportunities. Their programs help participants develop philanthropic skills, teach them about effective giving strategies, and provide networking opportunities, ultimately strengthening the connection these young adults have with the Jewish community.

BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER THROUGH EVENTS Every year, an estimated 20,000 people come from near and far to attend the largest Jewish gathering in the Bay Area − Israel in the Gardens. Organized by the Federation‘s Israel Center, the major clearinghouse for all Israel-related activities, the day including high profile Israeli entertainers on the main stage, accompanied by a myriad of booths representing local Jewish and Israeli agencies. There are also children’s activities, Middle Eastern food, jewelry, arts & crafts, books, films, prizes (including a chance to win free airfare to Israel) and fashions from around the world. Families and individuals alike take this opportunity to celebrate the birthday of our Jewish home together.

community leaders. By empowering our youth, we ensure future generations who are committed to community service, the Jewish people, and Israel.

More than twenty funds and foundations provide scholarships and financial assistance for programs from preschool to college. By helping families in financial need, we make Jewish experiences more accessible and keep life-changing education affordable. The Federation awards scholarships for Jewish preschools, day schools, overnight and special-needs camps, family specialty and LGBT camps. We also provide college assistance and on-the-ground learning opportunities by funding first-time teen trips to Israel.

CREATING UNIQUE LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR TEENS Through the Jewish Teen Foundations, students research Jewish and general community needs, develop mission statements, fundraise and engage in strategic grantmaking. The Diller Teen Fellows Program (funded by the Helen Diller Family Foundation) is an international leadership program for Jewish teens empowering participants to be active, effective leaders with a strong Jewish identity and a respect for pluralism. The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards annually recognizes five Jewish teens for exceptional community service and outstanding leadership. Winners receive an award of $36,000 for their college education or to further implement their vision for making the world a better place.

WELCOMING COLLEGE STUDENTS THROUGH HILLEL For many students, college isn’t just about academics; it’s about finding a peer group and developing a broader sense of self. Hillels provide opportunities for Jewish students all over the country to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity through its global network of regional centers, campus Foundations and Hillel student organizations. The Federation provides key operating support for Northern California Hillels in eight locations, helping ensure that Bay Area students maintain their connections to the Jewish community and their Jewish identity.

A te test of a people is how it tes behaves toward the old.

From its earliest roots, the Federation placed importance not only on building a strong Jewish community, but also taking care of the most at risk – our elders. Many are isolated, in frail health, and possess limited financial resources — struggling to take care of their most basic needs. Consistently and over many years, the Federation funds muchneeded services for seniors in our community, helping them remain active and connected – to one another and to the Jewish community.

- Abraham J. Heschel



The Kosher Lunch Program offers nutritious kosher meals to low-income seniors who would be at risk of social isolation and nutritional deprivation. The Friendship Circle “Lunch and Learn” program not only provides a hot vegetarian buffet 2-3 times per month, but also serves as a gateway to other events including clubs and classes, thereby engaging a greater number of seniors in activities.

Federation is committed to caring for the body, mind, and spirit of our elderly. That’s why we help ensure that our senior assisted living campuses have the funds they need to operate. At the Jewish Home, where residents’ average age is 87, seniors enjoy a wide range of recreational, cultural, intellectual, creative, and religious activities. From preparing quality meals to having access to 24 hour psychiatric care to celebrating Jewish holidays with friends, residents get on-site and off-site opportunities for enhanced living

OFFERING INTERESTING PROGRAMMING OPTIONS FOR SENIORS Everyone likes to feel welcome and invited. The Sonoma Friendship Circle program does just that for seniors. Through Federation funding, the JCC provides social, cultural, and educational programming for seniors in the remote outlying areas of Sonoma County. From excursions to affordable activities to an Annual Tea, the program has a tremendous impact on the social life of Jewish seniors.

SPIRITUAL CARE FOR THOSE IN NEED The Bay Area Jewish Healing Center provides spiritual care, counseling, and education to the bereaved, to those living with illness, and to those caring for the ill. The Grief and Growing Camp takes place within the beautiful natural setting of Camp Newman in Santa Rosa and is filled with specialized workshops and activities designed to help individuals and families attend to their losses and identify tools to help them in their mourning.

KEEPING SENIORS ACTIVE BY PROVIDING TRANSPORTATION When seniors lose their ability to drive, they can become isolated and depressed, and eventually decline in health. Compared with older adults who drive, non-driving older adults make 65% fewer social visits, family or religious trips, and 15% fewer trips to the doctor. And among Jewish seniors, transportation is the number one unmet need. The Senior Transportation Initiative, the Get Up and Go program, and Newhouse Rides are all a lifeline, giving autonomy to many who would otherwise be home-bound. These comprehensive programs work by funding older driver training courses, providing rides so seniors can get to medical appointments and do grocery shopping, and arranging group trips to local arts and cultural activities.
