Help Support Hurricane Relief
As we begin a new year, millions of Floridians are in danger.
Ian plunged large parts of the state into darkness and cut off water to millions of residents. Hundreds of thousands of residents were displaced or stranded. Jewish communities, including TOP's partner communities in Lee & Charlotte Counties and Greater Naples, and others have significant needs in terms of shelter, recovery, aid and rebuilding.
You can help support the local emergency relief efforts by donating directly to the Jewish Federation of Greater Naples and Jewish Federation of Lee & Charlotte Counties who have both created Emergency Relief Funds. Click here to donate
You can also support the Jewish Federations’ relief and recovery efforts by contributing to the JFNA 2022 Hurricane Relief Fund. click here to donate.

TOP Jewish Foundation helps our individual donors make the most of their charitable dollars and offers a host of services, including navigating donations of stock, Israel Bonds, and more complicated gifts.
Small- to medium-sized nonprofit organizations benefit from a suite of endowment and short-term investment support services that provide access to high-level oversight, responsiveness, and results with our investment manager, Goldman Sachs.
Through a decades-long commitment to community sustainability, TOP has distributed over 2,000 grants in the past year, totaling just under $10m and stewards over $66m of the community's assets.
Why is this foundation different than all other foundations?
TOP Jewish Foundation began over four decades ago as a regional endeavor of three Jewish Federations. Since its inception, TOP has grown to manage over $66 million of the community's assets and taken a leading role in promoting and securing legacy gifts and commitments, ensuring a strong Jewish future.
We pride ourselves on being the only Jewish foundation that maintains a strict anti-terror and anti-BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) investment policy. We've worked with our investment manager, Goldman Sachs, to create a screening tool that does not allow any such problematic companies to enter our portfolio.
We offer our partners--individuals and organizations just like you--a level of white-glove service, regardless of your fund's balance. As a partnership, we recognize that it is through your generosity that our entire community can continue to grow in strength.
Finally, in working with TOP for your philanthropic goals, you'll find that we truly live up to our tagline: We make giving easy.
