The Greensboro Jewish Federation supports programs and services that have real impact on Jewish life each and every day, in Greensboro, Israel and overseas. The combined generosity of donors to the Annual Campaign makes it possible for our community to support local, national and international agencies and initiatives providing a lifeline that enhances and often saves Jewish lives.

The Greensboro Jewish Federation considers local community-building needs and global shared responsibilities, and then allocates funds accordingly. The impact of this collective funding allows us to constantly and consistently meet the needs of our Jewish family, no matter how far reaching, no matter where they may be. 


Through our system of community partner agencies, we are able to bring together every age and segment of our community to strengthen Jewish life. Our allocations provide meals and programs for seniors; quality Jewish education, scholarships and summer camps for children; Israel experiences for teens and young adults; counseling activities for families; and a variety of programming and initiatives that elevate our Jewish community.


For information about the allocations process, please contact Greensboro Jewish Federation, or call Michele Perrell (336) 852-5433 x231.

Created in 2018, The Greensboro Jewish Federation Global Emergency Fund was established to distribute funds as needed to assist communities directly impacted by natural and other disasters.



Since our founding in 1940, the Federation has made significant investments in global Jewry. We mobilized the community to rescue and resettle Holocaust survivors in the 1940s and to help Ethiopian and Russian immigrants in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, we advocate for Israel, invest in services for Jews in need overseas, and foster people-to-people connections. Thanks to YOU, we are making an impact strengthening the bonds of friendship among Jews here at home, in Israel, and around the world. Our current programs include:

  • Helping Jews in Need Overseas: Through our longstanding partnership with the Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, and with direct funding, the Federation supports programs helping Jewish families in Israel and Jewish communities around the world obtain food, healthcare, education, and more.
  • Israel Opportunities for Young Adults: We support life-changing, immersive Israel experiences for young adults.
  • Israel-Focused Community Events: The Federation works with Jewish organizations to organize community events that foster strong connections with Israel through educational opportunities, cultural offerings, and Partnership2Gether gatherings.



    The Federation is a significant partner for movements in Israel fighting for religious pluralism. We see Israel as our home, and envision a future in which diverse Jewish expression is valued in Israel.

    In 2020, the Greensboro Jewish Federation allocated $10,000 to religious pluralism in Israel, $133,000 to the Joint Distribution Committee, $120,000 to the Jewish Agency for Israel, as well as $3,500 in other overseas allocations.
