Community Investments

The Federation supports programs and services that have a real impact on Jewish life each and every day, in the Columbus area, in Israel and Overseas. The combined generosity of thousands of donors to the Annual Campaign makes it possible for our community to support dozens of local, national and international programs providing a lifeline that enhances and often saves Jewish lives.

The Federation, through our system of community partner agencies, is able to bring together every age and segment of our community to strengthen Jewish life. Our investments provide meals and programs for seniors; quality Jewish education, scholarships and summer camps for children; Israel experiences for teens and young adults; counseling activities for families; and a variety of programming and initiatives that elevate our Jewish community.
