The Houston Jewish Community Foundation works to keep Houston’s thriving and vibrant Jewish Community in Houston and Texas alive.

As a primary, trusted and expert resource for philanthropy, the HJCF engages, educates, inspires and serves generations of donors, promoting the practice of tzedakah (righteousness, charity) and the pursuit of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) by serving as a central resource and advocate for charitable giving.

The group reflects the collective charitable hearts of its donors by advising on, receiving, administering, distributing and efficiently serving as the steward of funds that are designated for the present and future benefit of qualified charitable organizations.

This is accomplished by:

  • Empowering donors to convert generous ideas into deliberate action
  • Addressing community needs through strategic and high impact grant-making
  • Providing creative philanthropic planning expertise to individuals, families and community institutions to assist them in achieving their charitable goals.
