Community Compassion Fund

The Community Compassion Fund provides emergency relief to members of the Jewish community. Created during the Covid pandemic, the Fund is a project of Federation in partnership with the Foundation for Jewish Philanthropies and Jewish Family Services of WNY (JFS). Every dollar raised provides financial assistance to individuals and families for food, shelter, physical or mental health needs, and aid for a Jewish burial. JFS oversees the application and award process. At times, subject to the amount of the request, a sub-committee comprised of members from the Jewish Community will be engaged.
