Connected to Give: Key Findings

Connected to Give: Key Findings, the initial report in the series, examines the relationship between the charitable giving behavior of American Jews and their key demographics (especially age and income); their motivations for giving; the types of organizations to which they contribute (both Jewish and non-Jewish); and comparisons with giving patterns among non-Jewish Americans.

Connected to Give is a collaborative project of a consortium of independent foundations, family foundations, community foundations, and Jewish federations working in partnership with Jumpstart to map the landscape of charitable giving by Americans of different faith traditions. Connected to Give: Synagogues and Movements is written by Steven M. Cohen and J. Shawn Landres, with contributions from Mark Ottoni-Wilhelm, Joshua Avedon, and Jim Gerstein.
