Annual Campaign

The Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte's Annual Campaign raises close to $5 million dollars every year to provide the basic infrastructure that supports our local and global Jewish community.

Core campaign funds are gifts to the Jewish Federation for allocations among our community partner agencies, Israel and overseas and Federation programs and administration. We encourage each person in a household to make a gift meaningful for them. It is important that each individual has a voice and be counted as a donor in the annual campaign. Every dollar, every donor counts!

By allocating your philanthropic dollars to ensure the greatest impact, your Jewish Federation has earned a reputation as a trusted, effective charity that makes a real difference in our community and around the world.

Additional Giving Opportunities

Outshine Hate

The Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte is committed to putting an end to antisemitism and anti-Israel hatred by educating, strengthening, and uniting the local community through our Outshine Hate initiative.


LiveSecure is a comprehensive program created by the Jewish Federations of North America, in partnership with the Secure Community Network, to create a system of safety and security for all Jewish communities served by the Jewish Federation system, including the greater Charlotte Jewish community.


Did you know that many companies have gift-matching programs that will match your donation to Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte dollar for dollar? Gifts may include monthly payroll deductions as well as annual gifts. Gift-matching programs are a great way to maximize your personal contribution to Federation. Don't leave money on the table! Take advantage of your company's matching gift benefit to help increase YOUR impact for the community!

In addition to providing greater support for the community, your matching-gift donation offers other benefits:

For employees: You will be acknowledged at the recognition level that includes your employer’s match. For example, if you make a donation of $500 to Federation and your employer’s matching gift brings the total contribution to $1,000, you will be recognized at the $1,000 level. This would give you eligibility to attend an event that requests a minimum suggested gift of $1,000.

For employers: Donations received from employers through their matching-gift programs are fully tax-deductible.


Here is a sampling of Charlotte companies that are Match-Makers and have historically offered employees a matching gift donation. Don't worry - if your company is not on this list, just check with your HR department.
