The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle makes giving effectively straightforward. With strong financial stewardship and a constant pulse on the community, I know giving through the Jewish Federation ensures my giving will be distributed throughout the Jewish community in ways that positively impacts the most people. With so many needs and so many worthy causes, the Jewish Federation is an efficient clearinghouse for living generously.
JF is passionate, effective and efficient. They employ a team of experienced and compassionate people who do the good work. They are making a huge difference for good in our community.
The Federation is going out of its way to bring younger Seattle Jews into the mix, investigating social networking and new media as part of the solution. My volunteer work with the organization, though limited thus far, has been enjoyable and meaningful, and I hope to do more in the future, as time permits.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle has an open attitude and unifying approach. They reach nearly every jew in the Seattle area through their support of individual organizations within the region. The staff and volunteers are committed to a transparent and efficient process and always put the needs of the community above all else.
I have noted a big change in the direction and mission of the Seattle Jewish Federation in the last 2-3 years, very much for the positive. It is becoming more of a resource center for the jewish community and a coordinator for such things as early childhood education and community cohesiveness. IT is losing that "only a fundraising organization" reputation and is much more positively viewed by the Seattle Jewish Community.
Superb group of dedicated, caring, and creative people who serve the Jewish population of Seattle and the world at large. Very committed to strategic planning with other Jewish organizations and convening community groups to serve the needs of Jewish Seattle.
The Jewish Federation is an amazing organization that provides so many resources for Jewish families in our region. I know many families who, without Federation's help, would not have been able to send their children to camp or to Israel. I myself received an Israel scholarship and am incredibly grateful for the Federation's generosity and amazing philanthropy.
When I moved to Seattle, the Jewish Federation was the first place that I went to. I called, received a welcome packet and got plugged in-- not just with the Federation and their ongoing programs but other Jewish agencies in the area.
My experience with this organization has been very satisfying as a volunteer and as a donor. I feel fulfilled that I am making a difference in my Jewish Community through my involvement with the Jewish Federation.
Great organization, continuing to raise the bar on quality of programming. I am a donor and a volunteer there, have traveled with the group and served in a leadership capacity for the young leadership division. Good people with a great mission.
I am amazed at the high quality of volunteers and staff that work toward a common goal of strengthening the Jewish Community through programs and services that not only help those that are less fortunate than ourselves but that help connect us all. They are always looking for ways to improve in order to meet the needs of the community.
