The Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven’s Israel Experience Scholarship

“As a result of the Foundation’s generosity, I was inspired to give back to the community, ensuring that others also have the chance to grow and contribute. I had an incredible and fulfilling experience volunteering at Cafe J this summer, at the JCC. The time I have spent at Cafe J has been eye-opening and enriching in ways I could never have imagined. Working with the interns from Chapel Haven taught me valuable life lessons and the power of human connection. I am thankful for the chance to make a positive impact on our community, and I owe a significant part of this opportunity to the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven’s Israel Experience Scholarship for my gap year scholarship that supported me so that I may enrich my education in Israel. I will remember this summer and the lessons of gratitude and service for the rest of my life.”

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.
