Who We Are

The Jewish Federation of Raleigh-Cary is one of over 150 Federations throughout North America dedicated to meeting the needs of Jews here and abroad. Together, we touch more Jewish lives than any other organization around the world.

As a result of our fundraising efforts, we enable our local agencies (Jewish Family Services and the Jewish Community Center) and our divisions (Jewish Community Relations Council and the Jewish Community Foundation) to provide programs and services for community members across Wake County, including:

  • professional counseling or other social services for families in need
  • athletic, educational and social programming for youth, adults and seniors
  • advocacy and advancement of Jewish interests in the public schools, government and media
  • legacy gifts to build a strong Jewish community for generations to come

We support external organizations through an allocations process that benefits local, regional and international Jewish agencies.

We are a not-for-profit organization managed by a Board of Trustees and a professional staff. We are successful in accomplishing our mission thanks to community support for the Annual Campaign, fees for services and outside grants.
