The Generations Fund (New Home)

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 $68 million, 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 over $3.2 million in our Jewish future. Of this sum,  $3 million was earmarked for our Jewish day schools and camps for capacity building initiatives and match grants and to ensure that Jewish families have greater access to Jewish education and Jewish overnight camping experiences. Through the Generations Fund, including leveraging matching funds from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation we allocated close to $225,000 to support the PJ Library program for children in Montreal.
