The Jewish Funders Network is an international organization dedicated to maximizing the quality and impact of Jewish philanthropy. Our members include independent philanthropists, foundation trustees and foundation professionals.
Our name, Jewish Funders Network, is not just a name. Each of the words of our name has a meaning, and each of them is a critical piece of who we are:
|Jewish||If your Jewish identity informs your philanthropy…|
|Funders||If you are a funder who is committed to effective and impactful philanthropy and…|
|Network||If you believe that it takes collaboration and networking to make it happen…|
…then JFN is your home.
While JFN believes that funders make their own funding decisions and does not seek to influence or dictate a funding agenda, an overall goal of the organization is to expand Jewish giving and giving through a Jewish lens.
Membership is open to individuals and foundations that give away at least $25,000 annually in philanthropic dollars, and do so through the lens of Jewish values, no matter whether the funds go to a specifically Jewish cause or to a cause more broadly defined.
JFN is not a grantmaking organization and has no political agenda or affiliation. Solicitation of members is not permitted and all member information is kept strictly confidential.
