B'nai Tzedek Teen Philanthropy Program

Teaching teens the importance of Jewish philanthropy

The B’nai Tzedek Teen Philanthropy Program encourages teens to become involved in tzedakah by establishing a fund for Jewish charitable giving. Opening a B’nai Tzedek fund gives your teen a chance to play a part in improving your community and the world. So how does this work?

Donate at least $250 to the Tidewater Jewish Foundation (TJF) in order to establish a fund in the name of your teen! TJF will match your gift with another $250 for a starting fund balance of $500! Your teen can learn about the needs of the Jewish community—locally, in Israel and around the world. Each year, fund holders, your teens, can grant 4% of their fund to a Jewish charity of their choice.  In essence, you are empowering your kids to take ownership of their own philanthropy—a valuable lesson that we know pays off!
