The Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) recently launched giv4. This initiative allows everyone to participate in cause-based philanthropy, addressing one of our community’s biggest challenges – homelessness. The goals of giv4 are (1) to raise funds for a group of impactful nonprofits; and (2) to educate donors and increase their understanding of the complex issues surrounding homelessness.
The giv4 homelessness in san diego fund is a group of 12 nonprofits, carefully curated in partnership with the Lucky Duck Foundation and Funders Together to End Homelesness. The nonprofits work in one of three different areas: intervention, prevention or systems change.
Individuals can donate to the giv4 fund, and 100% of funds we receive are distributed to the twelve organizations. Each month, we tell the story of a giv4 nonprofit through brief videos and impact reports – each organization thus educates donors on a different aspect of homelessness (from youths to seniors; from outreach to shelter; from policy change to promoting understanding through music). More information can be found at giv4.org.
