Who We Are

JEWISHcolorado is the umbrella community organization
inspired by the collective responsibility to build and sustain
Jewish life in Colorado, Israel, and around the world.

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 over 70 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 over 150 other federations and over 300 independent network communities across the country.

We have two powerful mission objectives:

  1. We secure, steward and share philanthropic and human resources.

Through an annual campaign, as well as planned giving and endowment strategies, we maximize the generosity of those who donate to us to create a vibrant Jewish community. Our philanthropic advising, family initiatives and leadership development programs help us to build Jewish continuity and help Jews engage and learn throughout their lives.

  1. We mobilize the community in times of need.

We are dedicated to uniting our resources and people to help our community here and around the world when and where we are most needed. From natural disasters to acts of terrorism to community planning initiatives, we are ready to convene, strategize about solutions, and offer our full resources.
