Following the Money: A Look at Jewish Foundation Giving
This report presents selected findings from a forthcoming study of Jewish foundations and their impact on Jewish and non-Jewish charitable organizations. It focuses on Jewish foundation giving to Jewish causes in America and abroad. The report finds that Jewish foundations are making their mark on the Jewish philanthropic world. They help to fund the vast network of Jewish communal institutions, while also acting as catalysts for innovative programming and upstart organizations meeting the diverse needs of the Jewish community. The increasing role of foundations is not uniquely a Jewish trend. From 1999 to 2009 the number of grantmaking foundations in America has increased in total number from 50, 201 to 76, 545, an increase of over 50%. Nearly 10, 000 foundations have made grants to Jewish causes and of the 100 largest private foundations, 16 were founded by a Jewish donor.
