Jewish Foundation

Jewish Foundation Mission

The Jewish Foundation builds the Dayton Jewish community’s future, ensuring through endowments and donor advised funds that we pass the tradition of building on for generations to come.

“I like to help people! I know that charity and philanthropy have always been an important thing in my family, and I have always taken pride in seeing my parents’ and grandparents’ involvement in both Jewish and non-Jewish causes, so when the chance came to be a philanthropist myself, I knew it was something I wanted to do. Prior to my Bar Mitzvah, my parents established “Jeremy’s Fund” at Camp Livingston to help make camp – which is so important in my life – possible for other Dayton area kids. My B’nai Tzedek Fund will ensure that I personally will be able to continue to provide funds for this purpose.”

– Jeremy Bettman

A Sincere Thank You to our Legacy Teams and Generous Donors

When I first met with Cathy Gardner to discuss the LIFE & LEGACY program, I was both excited and nervous. To be honest I was terrified ~ it was a tall order.

Paying it Forward for Future Generations
