Federation Annual Campaign

  • "I came back with more of a sense of what being Jewish means to me and how I want to raise my kids. The trip was more than just memories. It was about the connection and friends I made. "
    Cari Hatch
  • "PJ Library is an invaluable resource for making sure my children grow up in a Jewish home. I can't think of a better way that would help integrate Judaism into our family traditions."
    Corey Shapiro

Campaign for Jewish Needs

The Campaign for Jewish Needs is the annual fundraising Campaign that ensures our community’s vitality and vibrancy in the year ahead. Whether we are feeding the hungry, comforting the sick, caring for the elderly, educating our youth, ensuring a Jewish future, or supporting Israel, our Jewish community stands together. And, together, we can make the world a better place.

You Power Ability

We invest in, and advocate for, programs and services that address systemic issues and provide a strong safety net during times of personal crises. Through our collaborative and warm relationships with various groups in Louisville, we unite to care for our community.
