Crisis Fund has met community's initial needs

Since its launch in mid-March, the Portland Jewish community’s COVID-19 Crisis Campaign has supported 41 Jewish organizations across the State of Oregon and SW Washington with grants totaling $801,000. The Greater Portland Jewish Community COVID Emergency Fund is a joint project of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland and the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation. 

To provide full transparency, the chart below lists all funds granted through June 30. 
Approximately $75,000 remains in the fund, which was created with the goal to support/assist Jewish organizations through at least June 30. 
“We believe we have done that,” says JFGP CEO and President Marc Blattner. “We have made the decision to hold those additional funds and not accept any more grant requests until September. We are most grateful to the hundreds of generous donors who have supported this effort.”
