We’re a passionate, innovative, and diverse global team dedicated to lifting lives and strengthening communities in 70 countries.

As the leading global Jewish humanitarian organization, we rescue Jews in danger, provide aid to vulnerable Jews, develop innovative solutions to Israel’s most complex social challenges, cultivate a Jewish future, and lead the Jewish community’s response to global crises like natural disasters, public health emergencies, and more.

Faith Based

Jewish National Fund USA

Unparalleled in the Jewish philanthropic world, Jewish National Fund-USA’s strategic vision has been and always will be, to ensure a strong, secure, and prosperous future for the land and people of Israel. Everything we do — every project, initiative, and campaign we take on – is integral to our vision of building and connecting to our land.
We plant trees, build houses and parks, source water solutions, buy fire trucks, and improve the lives of people with special needs. We boost tourism, support Aliyah, promote Zionist education and engagement, build medical centers and trauma centers, fund agricultural and culinary research, and run an American semester abroad high school in Israel. We do all these things because each project, each program, each partnership, is consistent with our strategic vision– population growth in the north and south, connecting the next generation to Israel, infrastructure development, ecology, forestation, heritage preservation, and more — all for the land and people of Israel.

All Square

All Square is a nonprofit social enterprise that invests in those impacted by mass incarceration through an entrepreneurial fellowship, a craft grilled cheese restaurant, and forthcoming law firm & prison-to-law pipeline.

Our mission is to ensure that those impacted by the criminal justice system have the support and opportunities they warrant to flourish as leaders, business owners, and legal practitioners.

Education

Southern California Public Radio

The mission of Southern California Public Radio (KPCC, LAist & LAist Studios) is to strengthen the civic and cultural bonds that unite Southern California’s diverse communities by providing the highest quality news and information across multiple platforms. We are a public forum that engages its audiences in an ongoing dialogue and exploration of issues, events, and cultures in the region and in the world. We seek to provide greater understanding and new perspectives to the people of these communities and their leaders.

Healthcare

City of Hope

City of Hope is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people with cancer, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Our mission is to transform the future of health care by turning science into a practical benefit, hope into reality. We accomplish this by providing outstanding care, conducting innovative research and offering vital education programs focused on eliminating these diseases.

Healthcare

Concern Foundation for Cancer Research

Though cancer research is a broad field, Concern Foundation focuses its funding in the areas of immunology, immunotherapy, genetics, and cell biology. These are the basic building blocks needed to achieve a better understanding of a cell’s function and mis-function within the human body for both adults and children. By targeting talented post-doctoral scientists and providing crucial salary support for innovative projects, Concern Foundation bridges the gap in the scientific research community. The knowledge gained from these young research scientists will lead to future treatments and early diagnosis, and eventually stop this insidious disease.

We serve approximately 10,000 people each year living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in Manhattan and the five boroughs of New York City. Over 60 percent of our clients are people of color, nearly 75 percent identify as LGBTQ+, and over 80 percent are people living at or below the Federal Poverty Line.
