Trust the WNC Jewish Federation to make sure that worthy Jewish agencies and causes receive the money they need to make a difference.

WNCJF raises and distributes funds in the greater Asheville and western North Carolina community, Israel and around the world.  These funds sustain our community organizations that make our strong, vibrant community what it is and what it will continue to be.

For years, WNC Jewish Federation has funded the Asheville Jewish Community Center, Jewish Family Services of WNC, The Center for Diversity Education, NC Hillel and UNCA Center for Jewish Studies, camp scholarships and agencies supporting Jews in need throughout western North Carolina and overseas.

Except for assistance from a part-time administrative manager and contract help, as needed, we are a totally volunteer organization including our Board members.

Using your donations to change the lives of many.
