Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation

Providing donors the vehicle to support and contribute to the long-term financial stability of the agencies that serve the Ottawa Jewish community.


In keeping with Public Health's advice, we have limited how often staff will be attending at the Foundation offices. Tribute cards will continue to be issued, but delays should be expected.

We are excited to present our new Tribute Card and Donation platform. Having difficulty? Contact 613-798-4696 ext. 274

Be an impactful philanthropist

If you are passionate about the future of Ottawa’s Jewish community, the Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation can help you make a difference. At whatever stage of life, the Foundation team can help you realize your philanthropic aspirations.

The Foundation was founded November 19, 1971 by visionary leaders to secure the future financial stability of Ottawa’s Jewish community institutions. Since that time, the Foundation has grown exponentially, benefiting from expert management and oversight. Our funds are invested with several sector managers, overseen by our investment advisor and portfolio manager, guided by the Foundation’s Investment Policy, and supervised by our capable and expert Investment Committee. Thanks to this high level of oversight, the Foundation has consistently produced robust returns.
