Storytelling night 2014

The Ithaca Area United Jewish Community (IAUJC) is an advocate for local Jewish organizations, as well as for the needs of Jews in Israel and other countries
around the world. Since our founding just after the birth of the State of Israel in 1948, the IAUJC has raised funds, supported Israel and made grants to local Jewish organizations. In addition, it has sponsored educational and cultural activities.  We are a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Any Jewish resident of the Ithaca area is considered a member of the IAUJC. Our volunteer governing Board solicits charitable gifts from the greater Ithaca community. Our donors contribute to IAUJC’s annual campaign, indicating what portion of their donation should be spent locally and/or globally. The global portion is sent to Jewish Federations of North America (formerly called UJA), which allocates the funds to projects in Israel and to needy Jews abroad. The local portion is awarded through a formal grant application process to local causes related to the Jewish community. Any donations that are received without a designation are split 60% to local and 40% to global.

We are very proud of the work we do.  Thanks to many generous donors, we are able to support the Jewish community both locally and abroad, in Israel and seventy other countries around the world, as well as to provide assistance to people in need.  Download our annual report here or below. (PDF)
