Honoring the values of tzedakah and tikkun olam, the Tidewater Jewish Foundation is dedicated to creating permanent resources to meet the challenges and needs of the Jewish community.

  • TJF Mission

    The Foundation educates individuals, families and its affiliates on the rewards of philanthropy and facilitates the philanthropic process through planned giving and endowments. Foundation grants and distributions serve the needs of Hampton Roads, the United States, Israel and nations worldwide. Donors partnering with TJF and its Federations and other Affiliates can achieve their philanthropic goals and create their legacy for future generations.


    The Tidewater Jewish Foundation recently completed its first year in the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s LIFE & LEGACY program as part of the 5th cohort to participate in this program, which now includes a total of 52 different Jewish communities.

  • Donor Advised Funds

    Your presence is needed. For your family. For your community. For Israel. For the Jewish people. But what will happen when you can no longer be there?

    A planned gift to the Tidewater Jewish Foundation enables you to be present forever.
