What is the Community Campaign?

Strengthening Jewish life. Supporting those in need. Building a safer, more inclusive world. When you support the Community Campaign, you provide critical funding for these three areas of impact. The Community Campaign is the heartbeat of our funding efforts, using your individual giving to leverage corporate, foundation and government dollars to multiply your impact many times over.

From day schools to retirement homes and from community centers to synagogues, we support a wide range of programs and institutions for people at all life stages that together create a more vibrant and resilient Jewish community in greater Pittsburgh.
