The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore

101 W. Mt. Royal Avenue,
Baltimore, MD 21201

The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore strengthens and nurtures Jewish life by engaging and supporting community partners, while meeting both immediate and emerging needs in Greater Baltimore, Israel, and around the world.

Every year, The Associated raises tens of millions of dollars through the collaboration and commitment of hundreds of volunteers, thousands of donors, and many community partners. Our purpose is simple: we bring people together to think big, act bold, repair the world, and shape our future.

Recent years have been challenging. We navigated a global pandemic, witnessed the traumatic impact of the mental health fallout of COVID-19 on our youngest generation, felt less safe in our own backyards as antisemitism, anti-Zionism, and hate continued to spread, and watched in horror as a massive humanitarian crisis unfolded in Ukraine.

In these difficult times, working together was more meaningful and more necessary than ever before. We leveraged our network of agencies and put our expertise to work, and we did not waiver. Together, we accomplished the extraordinary.

But there is so much more to do.
As the recent pandemic and economic crisis has shown, we all need a support system. For those who are facing hard times, The Associated is here to make sure they have the resources to regain their footing.

We take care of each other, whether it’s with a hot meal delivered to a homebound elderly person, an emergency loan to pay a month’s rent for a struggling family, special help for a child with learning differences, or an overnight shelter that keeps a victim of abuse safe. For the single mother, the grandfather, the teacher, the young child–for all those who face adversity–The Associated will always be the place to turn to for help.

There are many ways to make a difference.
Volunteer with us, spearhead a fundraiser, attend events, recruit a friend, join a committee, advocate for a fair and just world, meet up with other people who share your perspective or profession, or honor a friend with a tribute e-card.
