Our mission is to secure, steward, and share philanthropic resources in support of vibrant Jewish life as well as to mobilize the community in times of need.
JEWISHcolorado was organized as a nonprofit corporation on May 23, 1946. Similar to The United Way, JEWISHcolorado serves as a fundraising, programming, and community planning organization. We now celebrate 69 years of service in the Greater Metropolitan Denver/Boulder area.
We are inspired by the timeless Jewish values of Tzedakah (an act of social justice; sharing a portion of one’s wealth with those less fortunate and for the common good), Clal Yisrael (a shared sense of community and collective responsibility among all Jews), Tikkun Olam (to repair the world), Derech Eretz (a commitment to civility and the consideration for others), and L’dor VaDor (from generation to generation).
JEWISHcolorado is a proud member of Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), along with 151 other federations and over 300 independent network communities across the country.
