Robert and Rena Grodd Established the Rena & Robert Grodd Fund for Preschool Education at the Jewish Foundation

Charitable Giving

L’dor v’dor…from generation to generation, each of us has the responsibility to pass traditions on and keep them alive.  We have had the great fortune to be a part of the New Haven Jewish community for many years.  It is our desire that any Jewish parent who wishes to instill Jewish pride and a love of Israel in their children at a young age should have the financial means to do so.  Therefore, we made the decision to set up a charitable fund dedicated to helping offset the cost of a Jewish pre-school and/or camp program. ”

Let’s Start a Conversation

The Jewish Foundation can help you explore charitable opportunities that work for you. 

The Jewish Foundation is a trusted and expert resource for charitable gift planning and endowments and serves as a partner and resource for synagogues, local Jewish agencies, professional advisors and donors.

When you make a current gift or leave a bequest to the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven, you not only benefit our community, but you can also support the causes that are important to you.  You can designate that your gift be used to provide unrestricted funds to help meet community needs now and in the future or to endow a permanent fund to aid identified programs, your synagogue, agencies, organizations, or initiatives (Jewish or not Jewish, in Greater New Haven, Israel or beyond) that are of particular interest to you and your family.
