During times of crisis, individuals and private institutions must step up rapidly. JCF provides advice to make that philanthropy effective.

Philanthropy has a unique role to play when unanticipated challenges suddenly hit. Nonprofits and individual funders can move quickly and efficiently to share information, mobilize resources and help individuals in need. Whether in response to the Poway synagogue shooting, California wildfires, the Covid pandemic, or the movements for racial justice, JCF has brought together experts, resources and capital to guide donors seeking to understand evolving situations around them.

Whoever practices charity and justice fills the world with loving kindness.

Talmud (Sukkah 49b)
