The Jewish Federation is an outstanding organization. It is the umbrella organization of the Silicon Valley Jewish Community. It raises funds for local Jewish agencies, for Jews around the world and in Israel.

The Federation is VERY careful in the way in using donor gifts. It has a small staff and small overhead for this type of non profit.

My husband and I have a Donor Directed Fund that handles all of our philanthropic giving. I trust the Federation to make good decision with our gifts.

I have been both a professional and a full time volunteer with the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley. In both roles, I have found the Federation to be an exemplary organization. The Federation is extremely careful to maintain a low overhead, so that donations go directly to the beneficiary agencies. Each year, the Allocations committee meets with the agencies to assure that their allocation is supporting the mission of the agency.The Federation has also provided a strong support and social group for myself and my husband. In addition, I have learned many useful skills form serving on the board of the Federation. I am very proud to be part of this excellent non-profit.

I have been involved with the Jewish Federation in nearly all capacities, from being a recipient of community funds for trips to Israel,attending the local day schools and working for local Federation-funded agencies, to meeting my beloved at a Federation event and being a Federation donor and volunteer myself. The work this organization does goes above and beyond what others with so many more funds have accomplished. Kol Hakavoad!
