The Annual Campaign is Federation’s single most important vehicle for securing the welfare and vitality of the Jewish community, locally, globally and in Israel. Every dollar counts. Your Annual Campaign donation is allocated to Federation’s family of 17 local agencies and key national and overseas partners. A strong annual campaign assures a vibrant Jewish present and future, providing services and programs to our most vulnerable members and creating opportunities for Jewish identity-building, education and growth.

Locally. Federation and its network of 17 agencies create innovative programs to assist the needy, educate Jews of all ages, strengthen Jewish identity, and develop generational leadership that ensures a healthy and vibrant Jewish community.

In Israel. Your Annual Campaign donation supports at-risk and disadvantaged populations in Israel, as well as supporting Partership2GETHER, a program that connects the Jewish communities of Michigan with those of the Central Galilee, enriching and strengthening life in both regions.

Globally. Supporting Jews in the Diaspora, Federation dollars support programs and services for at-risk Jewish populations around the world and assist those making aliyah to Israel.

When you give to Federation, you invest in a network that works collaboratively to provide for the critical needs of our local and global community.
