What is THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community
Federation of Baltimore?
Established in 1920, THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore is Baltimore’s central philanthropic and community-building organization whose mission is to preserve and enhance Jewish life. It addresses charitable, educational, religious, humanitarian, health, cultural and social needs of the Jewish community locally, nationally, in Israel and throughout the world.
How does THE ASSOCIATED work?
THE ASSOCIATED is the central fundraising, community planning, allocations and umbrella organization for a network of agencies that serve the local Jewish community. THE ASSOCIATED prides itself on lay/professional partnerships. Volunteer leaders from the community help to evaluate current initiatives and programs, identify community priorities and build a lasting safety-net for future generations.
What does it mean to get involved?
Becoming involved in THE ASSOCIATED can mean many different things. Whether you are looking for long-term involvement, occasional opportunities or a one-time experience, there is a place for you at THE ASSOCIATED. THE ASSOCIATED will work with you to determine the best path for you to take on your volunteer journey. Whether you are looking to sit on a board or committee at THE ASSOCIATED or one of our agencies, plan events through IMPACT (our young adult division), network with other professional women through our Jewish Professional Women’s Initiative, work on our partnership with our sister-city of Ashkelon, participate in a leadership development program or hands-on volunteer opportunity, THE ASSOCIATED will help you feel connected to Jewish Baltimore and to Jews around the world.
