Ways to Give

Your donation encourages innovation, supports local agencies and services, rescues Jews in crisis around the world, secures a vibrant Jewish future, and so much more.

Give Where Needed Most

The Annual Campaign enables the Jewish community to proactively solve a wide range of pressing and perennial needs in Jewish life, as well as responding quickly when crises occur.


Become a sponsor for one of UJFT’s events, where you’ll enjoy high visibility with up to tens of thousands of informed, affluent, and active consumers and influencers across Tidewater and beyond.


Giving of your time and talents is a meaningful way to support the Jewish Federation, its partners, and those in need in the Jewish community. You can deliver meals to a homebound senior, visit someone in the hospital, make fundraising calls during a telethon, join an event planning committee, take photos at an event, and much more.

Creating a Jewish Legacy

The Life & Legacy program makes it easy and affordable for anyone to secure Jewish life for generations to come by leaving a legacy gift to the Jewish organization of one’s choice.
