Join the Jewish Federation’s COMMUNITY SHARK TANK!


Seeking our most innovative thinkers and passionate community members to be participants.

You will be tasked to work with a team to develop an exciting and impactful pilot project addressing the five areas of impact as identified in our Population Study:

Older Adults | Special Needs | Global Connection | Community Engagement | Family & Youth.

Generous local philanthropist will choose projects, awarding up to $25,000 at our live event.

If you are interested in being part of the change, consider being a shark!

All sharks contribute $5000 and work together to determine which projects to fund.
