Get Involved

You can make a difference!

The Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation is made possible because of dedicated volunteers and the generosity of donors who understand the importance of sustaining Jewish life in the Ottawa Jewish community for generations to come.


The Foundation consists of regular standing committees that oversee the daily activities of the organization, as well as ad hoc committees that meet on an as needed basis.


From time to time, new volunteers are required to handle specific projects and/or sit on various committees, such as:

  • Board Development & Education
  • Board of Directors
  • Fundraising
  • Investment
  • Education and Outreach
  • Women’s Philanthropy


Committee membership is determined by the Foundation Board of Directors (with input from respective Committee Chairs) and all expressions of interest are carefully considered.


If you would like to get involved with the Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation, we encourage you to contact our Foundation Associate at or 613-798-4696 ext. 252.
