Jewish Federation of Greater Houston Charity Profile
The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston was originally founded in 1936 as the Jewish Community Council to provide for Jewish social welfare and philanthropic works. Since that time, the Federation has generated and distributed more than $100 million to meet the wide-ranging needs of the Jewish community by working with our numerous community partners, both locally and globally.
Our mission: to preserve and enrich Jewish communal life through innovative and visionary leadership that is responsive and responsible to Jewish communities locally, nationally, in Israel, and around the world.
What we do.We fulfill our mission in a variety of ways: By providing financial resources to help meet short- and long-term community needs, both locally and globally
By providing educational resources for children, adults, educators, and families
By working with the media, policy-makers, and other influencers on behalf of various community constituencies
By keeping the community informed about relevant and pertinent issues
By creating "transformational experiences" through programs and services that change the way people view the Federation, the local Jewish community, the global Jewish community, the larger world, or more importantly, themselves.
