What We Do

Uniting Jewish Baltimore in a common goal

The Associated is Jewish philanthropy in Baltimore. The agencies and programs we support provide care for our most vulnerable, invest in our youth, enrich the quality of our Jewish life and deepen our sense of global peoplehood. We plan, provide and coordinate their funding, infrastructure and administration — enabling them to focus on serving.


Without this support, many of these would simply cease to exist.

Our Annual Campaign brings together the community to accomplish this very important mission. Each year, with the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of generous donors, we raise approximately $30 million of the more than $45 million we disperse. From personal philanthropic services and building community to developing leaders and planning for the next generation, we strive to do the most good for the greatest number of people possible.

Strengthen Global Community

Nurturing Jewish identity and caring for at-risk Jewish populations around the world is a core value of The Associated. The needs of the vulnerable Jew in Israel or Ukraine are the needs of the vulnerable Jew in Baltimore. Our work strengthens the ties that make us one people.
