The Greensboro Jewish Federation is the voice of our local Jewish community and for millions of Jews around the world. Giving care to those in need, giving deeper engagement in quality of life, and giving strength to the community, in Greensboro, Israel and around the world is at the heart of what we do. Since 1940, the Federation has funded programs that care for people at every stage of life – strengthening community, providing leadership, and nurturing the leaders of tomorrow.


Recognized as a leader of small Jewish communities in the US and Canada, our Federation is distinguished by a high level of volunteer leadership commitment, creativity and innovation, and an annual campaign of over 1,100 annual contributors and raises over $1.6 million. The Federation serves the community in many ways, offering programming, networking, and social events; brokering community relations; advocating for Israel, and organizing city-wide religious observances and celebrations. Whatever your passion, there is an opportunity to get involved and become part of the Greensboro Jewish community where YOUR Jewish live can thrive. 



The Greensboro Jewish Federation builds community among the Jewish people of Greensboro, assuring continuity from generation to generation. Recognizing that each Jew is responsible, one for another, the Federation promotes the welfare of the Jewish people in our community, in Israel and worldwide.


The Federation accomplishes its mission by:

• Developing Jewish educational and cultural activities.

• Promoting an understanding of Jewish culture and concerns.

• Fostering cooperation and effectiveness of existing Jewish organizations.

• Developing human and financial resources to meet Jewish needs.

• Building a strong relationship with our community-at-large.
