Welcome to the Greensboro Jewish Federation! The Federation is a proud supporter of B’nai Shalom Day School. We aim to create a vibrant and engaged community devoted to lifelong Jewish learning. By supporting high quality Jewish educational opportunities and making those opportunities accessible, we help ensure the future of our Jewish community while helping to develop future leaders.
Recognized as a leader of small Jewish communities in the US and Canada, our Federation is distinguished by a high level of volunteer leadership commitment, its creativity and innovation, and an annual campaign of over 1,100 annual contributors and raises over $1.55 million. Greensboro has a population of almost 200,000; the Jewish community numbers approximately 3,000, or 1,200 families.
The Greensboro Jewish Federation is the voice of our local Jewish community and for millions of Jews around the world. Giving care to those in need, giving deeper engagement in quality of life, and giving strength to the community, in Greensboro, Israel and around the world is at the heart of what we do.
Our constituent agencies, the Jewish Foundation of Greensboro and Jewish Family Services, both work to support the community in many ways. We work together to provide opportunities to get help and give help.
The Jewish Foundation of Greensboro offers many options to allow donors to show their support of and commitment to the Jewish people, including donor advised funds, endowment funds, and testamentary gifts. Through the Create a Jewish Legacy initiative, the Foundation promotes awareness of bequests, endowments, and other planned gifts and educates the community on how to create a meaningful charitable legacy.
