2018 Annual Report

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.
