The Federation maximizes the impact of the dollars raised through its annual campaign to fund organizations and programs that make a difference in Jewish lives every day. We work collaboratively with our funded partners to provide needed services, strengthen Jewish life and identity and build community.
The Federation funds these organizations each year based upon the significant number of programs and services they provide that are critical to the wellbeing of our community. Strategic Partners are granted the flexibility to use funding as necessary to respond to crises, expand programs, evaluate services and leverage other funding to have a greater impact on our community. Strategic Partners are evaluated in-depth every three years to ensure they are meeting the Federation’s Strategic Partner criteria and serving the community at the highest level.
Core Impact Partners
Core Impact Partners receive funding for specific programs within our core impact areas, engaging the next generation, enriching seniors and supporting Jewish communities worldwide. Any Jewish community 501c3 organization, with a governing board of directors, a board-approved budget and a program that meets funding criteria can apply.
For information about our funding process and to be considered, please contact 480.481.7031 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our School Partners are the Valley’s full-time K-12 Jewish day schools and are recognized by the Jewish Tuition Organization. Each School Partner receives funding based on the total dollars allocated for School Partner Funding divided among the partners based on the number of students enrolled as of October 15 of the school year.
The Israel & Overseas Funding Council funds the projects and services that our Overseas Partners offer to Jews in Israel and in more than 70 countries throughout the world. The Council evaluates partner programs and the impact of Federation dollars on our partners’ ability to meet on-going and developing needs in a meaningful way.
