Generational Shift Seen in Giving to Jewish Causes

According to an article this past week in the Chronicle of Philanthropy, ” a generation of young Jewish donors is increasingly opting not to give to the causes supported by their parents and grandparents but are instead creating charities and foundations that are directly relevant to their lives.”

“A recent report by United Jewish Communities, a network of 155 Jewish federations throughout North America that distributes money to charities, found that federation giving among Jewish people under 50 years of age had sharply decreased.”
