Research about foundation giving was recently released. Looking at the 24% donated to Jewish causes reminds me that we must remain active in supporting the Jewish organizations that mean the most to us, enabling them to survive and thrive as best they can. I firmly believe that charity begins at home and that building the foundation of Jewish giving for children will enable them to carry on their charitable practices well into their adult lives. As for Jewish adults, I believe we must all be educated about the various groups and foundations out there in order to best select the place to donate our charity dollars. With more education about the impact each group and foundation makes, we can make a more educated decision as to where our money should go and how it should be spent.
