Our Stories

Why Give

Our Vision

To ensure a vibrant Jewish community in Silicon Valley and promote the well-being of all people by providing visionary leadership, philanthropic support, and meaningful programs and experiences that are rooted in Jewish values and traditions.

Your Support is Vital

When you donate to Jewish Silicon Valley, you are changing lives. Your gift will provide support in three critical areas:

  • Programs that improve people’s lives Jewishly, with a focus on Youth & Family Engagement, Healthy Aging and Jewish Life & Culture.
  • Community building and leadership development, through partnerships with local Jewish and other community agencies to foster collaboration, empower community leaders, inspire the next generation, and build bridges of understanding.
  • Philanthropy that provides support for local Jewish organizations and Jewish communal needs locally, nationally, in Israel and around the world.

Where Your Money Goes

In the 2020-2021 fiscal year, we supported 16 local initiatives from 14 agencies.

Donor-Advised Funds

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a simple and low-cost philanthropic vehicle that allows you to set aside charitable dollars in a tax-efficient way for grantmaking now or in the future. Jewish Silicon Valley offers a variety of opportunities to invest in your passions. When you establish a DAF with us, you create a base of financial support for the Jewish community, as well as the general community.
