Where does your money go when you make a donation to Federation?

Here in Dayton, your Campaign dollar does more than you could ever imagine within the Jewish community locally, in Israel, and around the world! Where else can one dollar impact so many people’s lives, nurture Jewish culture, and make an impact not just in Dayton, but all the way to Western Galilee? Every year we raise funds from our community to support our mission. Here’s a brief outline of the organizations – both external and internal – that carry out the work that accomplishes our goals.

Partnership2Gether – Dayton’s direct connection to the Western Galilee in Israel.

Hillel Academy of Greater Dayton – Our local Jewish day school serving grades kindergarten through 6th, building a strong foundation of Judaic and academic excellence.

Ohio Jewish Communities – OJC represents Ohio’s Jewish Federations & their communities by educating and maintaining relationships with government officials while encouraging sound public policies that affect Jewish communities within Ohio.

Hillel Consortium – Supports Hillel on college campuses throughout the Miami Valley, with a strong emphasis on Miami University Hillel.

Jewish Council of Public Affairs – The national hub for more than 125 Jewish Community Relations Councils across the country. JCPA educates, advocates, and mobilizes by leading the field in responding to current events and emerging policy concerns.

Birthright Israel– Birthright Israel seeks to ensure that every eligible young Jewish adult around the world is given the opportunity to visit Israel.

JCC Maccabi games – An Olympic-style sporting competition held each summer in North America and is the second largest organized sports program for Jewish teenagers in the world.

Federation – Cares for those in need, strengthen Jewish life, and create connections among Jews — acting locally, in Israel, and around the world.

Dayton Jewish Observer – Our award winning local Jewish newspaper.

Jewish Community Center – Provides a universal sense of belonging in the hearts and minds of Jewish Dayton. The creative programming ideas educate and impart Jewish values to all members of the community, regardless of age, creed, nationality, or religion. Also includes the JCC’s Jewish preschool.

Jewish Family Services – Guided by Jewish traditions, Jewish Family Services (JFS) of Greater Dayton provides individuals and families within the Miami Valley with the tools and services to lead happy and healthy lives.

The Jewish Foundation of Greater Dayton provides a permanent revenue stream to the Jewish Federation’s Annual Campaign through Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowments (PACE) and Lion of Judah Endowments (LOJE). These endowments provide stability and a solid source of income on an annual basis. Because of these funds (and other supporting funds from generous donors), the Jewish Foundation does not require an allocation from the Annual Campaign.
