The Annual Campaign

Become part of a caring, compassionate community that unites in good times and bad to take care of each other and to celebrate Jewish life together. A contribution to the Rochester Federation Annual Campaign is the one gift that does it all - here in Rochester, in Israel and in 70 countries around the world.


The Jewish Federation Annual Campaign is the most trusted fundraising vehicle in the world, raising nearly a billion dollars across North America every year to provide the basic infrastructure that supports the global Jewish community.
