Community Impact

 

Jewish Nevada's volunteer committees consider local community-building needs and global shared responsibilities, and then allocate funds accordingly. The impact of this collective funding of Federation allows us to constantly and consistently meet the needs of our Jewish family, no matter how far reaching - from across the street to across the state and around the world.

 

The Federation, through our system of community partner agencies and grantee organizations, is able to bring together every age and segment of our community to strengthen Jewish life. Our allocations grants 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.

70 Organizations. 3 Priority Areas. 1 Community Federation.
