Your Dollars at Work


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

Committees of volunteers meet regularly to discuss issues impacting Jewish populations, reassess community needs, research new initiatives, 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 a brighter tomorrow.

Thanks to you, CJP is allocating $51,157,000 for FY17 (July 2016 through June 2017).

We address our community's most urgent needs by:

  • Expanding a community-wide response to address Jewish poverty and financial instability with coordinated, comprehensive resources
  • Helping people of all abilities lead fulfilling lives as valued members of our community
  • Giving seniors the assistance they need to be healthy, active, and fulfilled
