The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati is an independent private foundation that is legally separate from the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, which is a nonprofit organization. We each have our own Trustees and professional staffs, as well as our own respective rules of governance, community goals and practices. While the Foundation makes investments in the local community from assets derived in large part from the sale of The Jewish Hospital of Cincinnati, we raise funds from the community and allocate them to programs locally, in Israel and around the world.
But what we have in common is that we are both stewards of Jewish community resources, and as such, work very closely together with the shared vision to ensure a vibrant Cincinnati Jewish community. The Jewish Foundation is both a significant supporter of the Jewish Federation’s annual Community Campaign and a planning and funding partner with the Jewish Federation on a variety of projects in the areas of senior services, poverty and other vital services, Jewish education, Israel awareness and travel grants, leadership development and many others.
