Why Give

Together we will do extraordinary things



The Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020, enacted last December, provides several provisions to help individuals and businesses who give to charity. The new law generally extends through the end of 2021 four temporary tax changes originally enacted by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Cash donations of up to $600 made before December 31st, 2021, are now deductible when people file their taxes in 2022. 


Take advantage of this new provision to help Jewish Silicon Valley!

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.
