The mission of the Jewish Community Foundation of Central Pennsylvania is to help donors do what is in their heart to support Jewish causes that are meaningful to them. 

  • We ask Donors what they care about and help them to create enduring funds to support those causes.  By doing so Foundation is helping our community organizations.

  • We listen to Donors to help them create their own legacy plans resulting in enduring gifts to ensure the financial stability and continuity of our Jewish community.

  • We offer Donors the opportunity to do what is in their hearts to support Jewish and other causes meaningful to them.

Administration: Foundation professionally administers, manages and invests nearly 350 Funds totaling more than $25 million in Endowments, Donor Advised Funds, Trusts, Gift Annuities and more for a variety of charitable causes.

Donor Advised Philanthropic Fund: Simplify your philanthropy, engage family members in the giving processes, support what is most meaningful to you - and secure the future of our Jewish community. 

Life Income Plans: The Jewish Community Foundation offers charitable gift annuities and trusts from which donors may receive a lifetime income in return for their charitable gift.

Endowments: We help donors create endowment funds that will provide financial support for the causes dear to the donor.


Create your Jewish legacy.  Remember the Jewish Community with a gift in your will, retirement plan, life insurance policy, trust and with other assets.
