The Generations Fund is Federation CJA’s single most significant and ambitious investment in the future of the Montreal Jewish Community. This important endowment fund, established by Federation CJA in partnership with generous and visionary donors, now includes a commitment of over $65 million dollars, designated to strengthening Jewish identity, in order to secure the long term vibrancy of the Montreal Jewish community. These investments are directed toward five program areas, including: increased access to and excellence in our Jewish day schools, and Jewish camps; youth outreach and engagement; Jewish learning; and Israel experiences.
Last year, the Generations Fund enabled us to invest a total of close to $3 million dollars in our Jewish future. Of this sum, $2 million dollars went to the Jewish day schools to help sustain educational excellence, and ensure greater access to a Jewish education. Through the Generations Fund, including leveraging matching funds from the Foundation for Jewish Camp and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation we allocated close to $620,000 to support the supply and demand for Jewish overnight camping and the PJ Library program for children in Montreal.
