The Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg strengthens the bonds within our community and unifies the community around a Jewish identity today and for future generations.

The Federation supports a wealth of programs that strengthen Jewish identity and guarantee Jewish continuity. Giving to your Jewish Federation supports the values and traditions that have built the Jewish community. By donating now to the Federation of Greater Harrisburg, you are supporting our social, educational, and cultural programs and activities and so much more in all we do in this community.

Appreciated Securities

Giving appreciated securities is a tax-wise way for you to pay your pledges to Federation. For securities held longer than one year, you can deduct the full fair market value of the stock, regardless of the purchase price AND avoid paying capital gains tax.


AmazonSmile is a way that you can help the Jewish Federation simply by doing your regular shopping. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a percentage of the purchase price of eligible products to the Jewish Federation. It's an additional way to help that costs you nothing, and gives us a little bit extra.
