Federation

Serving multiple generations, the Federation is the central coordinating agency for the Tarrant County Jewish community. It acts as the umbrella organization through which the community’s fund-raising, community programs, leadership development, community relations, and Jewish continuity needs are met.

With funds raised each year, a network of more than 29 organizations devoted to education, revitalization, social services, humanitarian aid, and poverty relief for Jewish populations in Tarrant County, the United States, Israel, and around the world are supported by the Federation. Fifty percent of these funds are used locally to provide vital support to Tarrant County institutions.

Fundraising

Each year the Federation runs an Annual Campaign beginning in February and concluding in May. Volunteer solicitors try to call the same donors every year so that they develop a relationship and can truly help their donors with the mitzvah of giving. The 2017 Annual Campaign raised $1,000,535 which the Federation was able to allocate to 29 organizations. For more information see, Your Money at Work. Some of the Campaign events that the Federation sponsors each year are the Community Programs, the Major Gifts Event, and Tzedakah Sunday.

The Major Gifts Event is the kick-off for the Annual Campaign and takes place in February. It features key speakers and a reception and is open to $2,500 and above givers. Tzedakah Sunday takes place in the late winter/spring timeframe and features a phonathon. Volunteer callers spend an entire Sunday reaching out to as many givers as possible. Both of these events help the Federation build and support the Jewish community and raise badly needed funds for local, regional, national, and overseas agencies.
