Forward Together in 2021-22

Your investment in the Annual Campaign and The Fund for Jewish Milwaukee enabled us to have a profound impact on the health and welfare of our people and the organizations that serve them. All local organizations benefited — our traditional partner agencies, synagogues and other Jewish organizations — in Milwaukee, in Israel and around the world.

We can point to some certitudes during this very uncertain time. The Milwaukee Jewish Federation is ready to act no matter what the future holds. We have been nimble and responsive, discovering evolving needs, identifying collaborative solutions, investing our donors’ philanthropic dollars wisely, and demonstrating the impact of our investments.

The Fund for Jewish Milwaukee

As the center for Jewish philanthropy in Milwaukee, we are leading our Jewish community’s response to the coronavirus. We have launched a $3 million fundraising campaign called The Fund for Jewish MKE, a centralized source of support to benefit our whole local Jewish community.

Your donation to The Fund will offer critical help to our people – from caring for our elders to feeding the hungry. You’ll also give much-needed assistance to Jewish organizations that need our help now, and over the coming months, so our Jewish community comes out of the crisis as strong as ever. 

Make an Online Tribute

Make a donation to the Milwaukee Jewish Federation in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one. Tribute gifts are often the most meaningful way to thank a friend, to recognize an important milestone or to remember someone who is no longer with us. You will receive an acknowledgment of your gift by mail, and a card will be mailed to the person or family in whose name your gift was made.
