Your Dollars at Work

How do we decide where the money goes? We don't. You do! CJP and community volunteers work year-round to make sure your gift is helping as many people as possible, where it's needed most.

Committees of volunteers meet regularly to discuss issues impacting Jewish populations, reassess community needs, research new programs and evaluate the effectiveness of CJP programs on the community at large.

This process informs where we invest funds — ensuring that each program meets the changing needs of the community for the brightest possible future.

Together we're making a bigger difference.

Thanks to you, CJP is investing $46,476,000 in our community for FY2014
