One of the core values of the Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) is Dor l' Dor - the passing of Jewish values, traditions and responsibilities from generation to generation.
By holding a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) at JCF, a portion of your fund fees supports this value through the Jewish Teen Foundation (JTF). This program provides meaningful opportunities for San Diego Jewish teens to learn about the needs of their community, and how to effect change through strategic philanthropy guided by Jewish values and traditions.
This fall, JTF will be welcoming 26 high school students to participate in the program and to take part in this engaging and inspiring philanthropic process.
We are looking for:
Jewish High School students
Entering 9th - 12th grade
Experience with Tzedakah and community service
Open to the entire San Diego Jewish community

Last year, our 2014-15 JTF teens chose to focus on securing human rights for women and children. They raised $25,000, and following a thorough grant review process, selected seven grantees to be the recipients of those funds. Read more.
The Jewish Community Foundation has developed a strategic plan to serve more teens in San Diego.
