Jewish Aid Worldwide: America, Israel and Beyond is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation governed by an independent board of directors. We operate as a national federation in the Combined Federal Campaign, supporting charities with a range of services provided at low and predictable cost.
Our members continue the long Jewish tradition of philanthropy. They are each 501(c)(3) tax exempt and meet the tests of fiscal accountability, governance and programmatic impact required by the campaigns we enter.
Workplace Giving Alliance
Jewish Aid Worldwide is a founding member of the Workplace Giving Alliance (WGA), a family of federations participating in fundraising campaigns in the public sector.

WGA's Vision for Workplace Fundraising
We see the payroll deduction, which characterizes most workplace giving, as a way for people with modest resources to become philanthropists. Payroll philanthropists are stunningly generous, supporting thousands of charities in their own communities and around the world.
As strong advocates of payroll philanthropy, we are dedicated to the success and integrity of the campaigns that enable it. We also strive to honor donors by getting every possible dollar to the charities they select and by being transparent about operational costs.
