The Jewish Federations of North America (“JFNA”) consist of 146 Jewish Federations and dozens of Network communities which collectively raise and distribute more than $3 billion annually to support flourishing Jewish life and the needs of the Jewish people in their home communities and around the world. The Jewish Federation system, among the top 10 charities on the continent, leads the largest network of volunteer and professional leaders who build and sustain Jewish communities that are healthy, safe, caring, welcoming and inclusive, educated and engaged, involved in the broader community, and deeply connected to Israel and the global Jewish people.   


Atid is JFNA’s premier philanthropic leadership program, designed to inspire and catalyze intentional philanthropy among highly resourced wealth inheritors and wealth creators. Atid cohort experiences and the Atid Alumni Network are positioned to serve as a cutting edge, sophisticated, multifaceted family philanthropy initiative and resource hub, equipped to cultivate and nurture the future of Jewish giving throughout North America.


Atid is currently operating pilot cohorts in two communities, as well a national cohort targeting participants from smaller communities. Beyond the initial pilot phase, Atid will be adopted in as many cities as possible, with opportunity for multiple additional local and national cohorts to launch and join the growing network of Atid communities. All cohort participants will also have access to the Atid Alumni Network upon completion of the formal cohort experience, where they will be able to access ongoing networking opportunities, additional travel, resources, and philanthropic advisory services.




Under the supervision of the Vice President of Philanthropy, the Director of Atid Programs will implement and support all Atid and Atid Alumni Network activities. The Director will be an integral professional presence for Atid, responsible for growing the program from its early phase to a fully developed, thriving, and scalable national initiative.
