Organizational Health Resources


CJP strives to build deep and authentic partnerships and to support a thriving communal ecosystem. To help achieve this, we focus on six primary areas of organizational health: Finance, Professional Leadership and Strategy, Development/Fundraising, Board Governance, Marketing, and Operations. In order to strengthen your organization in these areas, we are pleased to provide resources including links to trusted websites, tools, templates, access to prior webinars and more.

Each year, we provide a survey to assess the health of our partner organizations to understand areas of growth and strength. Read CJP's Annual Communal Jewish Organizational Health Reports. Download the survey for your own use.
