NextGen Charlotte is supported and funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte. The Jewish Federation works to build a strong and enduring Jewish community. Community evolves with each generation. How we interact with Jewish life isn’t the same as how our parents or grandparents have before.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte's Annual Campaign raises close to $5 million dollars every year to provide the basic infrastructure that supports our local and global Jewish community.
Core campaign funds are gifts to the Jewish Federation for allocations among our community partner agencies, Israel and overseas and Federation programs and administration. We encourage each person in a household to make a gift meaningful for them. It is important that each individual has a voice and be counted as a donor in the annual campaign. Every dollar, every donor counts!
By allocating your philanthropic dollars to ensure the greatest impact, your Jewish Federation has earned a reputation as a trusted, effective charity that makes a real difference in our community and around the world.
