Major Gifts Division

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation is proud to work with a large number of visionary individuals and families who have helped to build Miami’s strong Jewish community and who have set the pace for others to follow through their generous support of the Annual Federation/UJA Campaign.

The Federation Major Gifts Department provides opportunities for our Jewish community to extend appreciation to households making Annual Campaign gifts of $10,000 or more. Major Gifts donors are invited to join like-minded philanthropic leaders at first-class events, meetings with legislators in Washington and sessions with high-level Israeli leaders, as well as customized missions to Israel and Jewish communities around the world. View photos from past Major Gifts events.




In addition, the names of Major Gifts donors are listed in the Federation Roll of Honor, which is published annually and seen by leaders in Miami’s Jewish, civic and legislative communities.

For more information, please contact us at MajorGifts@JewishMiami.org or 786.866.8431.
