About Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver:
Since its start in 1987, the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver (JFGV) serves the Jewish community locally and extends support to Jewish communities abroad. It is one of 12 regional organizations across Canada that is a member of the Jewish Federations of Canada. JFGV also provides relief to crises in Israel by working with The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs.
To date, JFGV has raised more than $140 million. The main source of its funding is the Federation Annual Campaign. Funds and grants raised from this campaign go to partner agencies to deliver programs and services to the community. JFGV’s local partners include food banks, schools and community centres. The programs are directed towards the poor, youth and seniors to bring the community together. Recent reports by JFGV show that youth feel isolated from the Jewish community and that seniors will double in population by 2030.
JFGV has a community consultation process to reassess the community’s needs. Based on these studies, the Planning Council now includes more youth and has increased funding towards education. Newer projects also include a Jewish Addiction Services program.
