Why is this foundation different from all other foundations?

TOP Jewish Foundation began over three decades ago as a regional endeavor of three Jewish Federations. Since its inception, TOP has grown to manage over $58m 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.

$20.5 million in anticipated gifts has been raised through the LIFE &LEGACY Program! You can join the 615 community members that have made a legacy gift by completing a Letter of Intent today! To access our LIFE & LEGACY webpage, where you can download a Letter of Intent form, click here.
