About US

Our Mission

As the major instrument of Jewish philanthropy and volunteerism in the Detroit area, we are a person-to-person, community-driven organization dedicated to the health, education, spiritual, and cultural identity of the Jewish people worldwide.

Through the annual fundraising drive, and in partnership with the United Jewish Foundation, Federation raises and allocates funds to provide life-saving and life-enhancing humanitarian assistance to those in need, and to translate Jewish values into social action on behalf of the nearly 100,000 Jews in the Detroit area. Locally, Federation supports a family of 19 social service agencies and schools. Additionally, Federation funding impacts the lives of thousands of Jews throughout Israel, in the former Soviet Union, and in 60 countries around the world.

There are many doors in to this vibrant Jewish organization and many ways to contribute and participate in its vital work. We invite you to explore this website for opportunities that may be of interest and to contact us for more information.
