Knowledge to Action: The Policy Implications of Connected to Give (Webinar)

By J. Shawn Landres, Steven M. Cohen

Today’s conventional wisdom tells us that Jewish giving is declining; that fewer Jews--especially those under 40--are giving to Jewish organizations; that the philanthropic threads that have sustained the community are unraveling; and that the Jewish communal system no longer leads the way in defining global or even American philanthropic and nonprofit innovation as a whole. To explore and respond to these challenges, Jumpstart's Connected to Give series offers the first ever nationally representative portrait of the charitable behaviors of American Jews.

As the Connected to Give series continues to unfold - with at least two more reports due out before the summer - what policy tools does it suggest we harness to energize our community’s base of supporters--at all giving levels--to give more to Jewish causes and/or to be guided by Jewish values in their giving?
