The Foundation accomplishes this by partnering with donors and community organizations to fulfill their philanthropic goals and to sustain a vibrant and secure Jewish community now and in perpetuity.

The Jewish Community Endowment Fund is held by the Austin Community Foundation and is intended to support and enhance the Jewish community of Austin and Central Texas. Shalom Austin, through the Jewish Foundation, directs the award of available endowment fund dollars.

The Jewish Foundation is pleased to offer this inaugural opportunity for funding through the Jewish Community Endowment Fund. The Jewish Foundation intends to make a total of $4,000 in awards in this funding cycle to at least two eligible organizations.
