The Jewish Community Foundation inspires, educates and engages with individuals and families to make them effective philanthropists and social investors, all through a lens of Jewish values. JCF develops and manages philanthropic vehicles and assets, including donor-advised funds, endowments, and organizational funds. A philanthropic innovator, the JCF is a leading community foundation in offering impact investment opportunities to its donors. JCF is also renowned nationally for its Endowment Leadership Institute, a model that has been replicated across the country. Over the past 50 years, the JCF has granted more than $1.6 billion to 6,000+ organizations on behalf of more than 1,000 donors, making it the largest grantor in San Diego. Nearly $1 billion of these funds have assisted organizations in our immediate community; close to $500 million has supported Jewish causes. The work of our 15-member staff and 21-member Board is guided by JCF’s two core beliefs: 1. We believe in the power of every individual to make a difference and that together we can change the world. 2. We believe in the innate value of Jewish tradition, of living Jewish values in the present and ensuring a vibrant Jewish future.
