About Us

As the major instrument of Jewish philanthropy and engagement in the Detroit area, we are a community-driven organization committed to taking care of the needs of the Jewish People and building a vibrant Jewish future, in Metropolitan Detroit, in Israel and around the world.

Through our Annual Campaign, Federation raises and allocates funds to provide life-saving and life-enhancing humanitarian assistance to those in need, including seniors, the disabled, the unemployed, and other individuals and families in need.    Additionally, Federation works to translate Jewish values into social action, providing avenues for Jewish education, enrichment and continuity throughout the community.

Locally, Federation supports a family of 18 social service agencies and Jewish schools across Metropolitan Detroit. Working with its global partners, Federation also impacts the lives of thousands of Jews throughout Israel, in the former Soviet Union, and in 60 countries around the world.

There are many doors in to Federation and many ways to contribute and participate in our vital work. We invite you to explore this website for opportunities that may be of interest and to contact us for more information.
