JPSA raises in excess of $4.2 million to support Jewish needs locally and overseas through the Federation’s Annual Campaign and other fundraising initiatives. In addition, the Jewish Community Foundation has more than $150 million under management and actively works with fund holders to make impact in the community and in areas they care about most.

Ultimately, JPSA’s vision is to achieve the full potential of Jewish philanthropy, now and for future generations. We are proud to partner with organizations, families, and individuals to foster and enhance community and respond to those in need – enriching Southern Arizona, the Jewish people, and the world.

As we re-envision ways to support and impact our community, we’ve also created new roles for others who inherently get our mission, see our vision, and live our values.
