Welcome to the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond

We are the central fundraising, community planning, leadership development, and outreach arm of the Jewish Community

CEO Samuel Asher's July Update

This year’s Annual Report contained an info-graphics section that spelled out some of the high points of this year.  I have taken the liberty of displaying some of those info-graphics here to reinforce the impact of the Federation’s good works:

 •    1411 Donors to the Annual Campaign – The Jewish Community Federation of Richmond is serious about building a stronger more vibrant Jewish community in Richmond and around the world. Our donors and volunteers make this possible.

  •  33 Richmond Jewish Coalition for Literacy Mentors – While in its 18th year, RJCL continues to work with students at Swansboro Elementary School in the city of Richmond. We recently added Laburnum Elementary School in Henrico County to this engaging program.

   •  19 New Life and Legacy Gifts – This new legacy giving and endowment building program sponsored by the JCFR, Richmond Jewish Foundation and Grinspoon Foundation has helped the Richmond Jewish Community ensure a thriving Jewish community today, and tomorrow. The program has inspired 230 letters of intent for a projected amount of almost $7 million to the community agencies,  synagogues, and organizations.
