JCA Destinations 2019
Your guide to the programs that enrich our local Jewish community
This year, JCA is introducing a new approach to fundraising and allocations on behalf of our 23 member organisations that, together, make our community the vibrant network it is today.
You can choose to make a communal donation that will be distributed by the JCA Allocations Committee to where it’s most needed. You can also choose which specific programs you’d like to support. Or you can choose a mix of both.
JCA Destinations gives you insight into the depth and breadth of programs that support our community. It provides transparency, up front, of actual funding needs. And it gives you choice in where your donations go and the impact you make.

Browse programs by sector
Programs that support some of the most vulnerable in our community, providing social services and financial support to the elderly, community members living with disabilities, and those facing mental health challenges, and domestic and family crises.
Programs that support strategic planning across the community – ensuring current and future needs are met in the most effective and cost-efficient way – and engagement with current and next-generation donors to sustain our vibrant network.
Programs that add to the richness and vibrancy of Jewish life across all ages – from infancy through young adulthood and into old age – engaging through culture, sport, universities, and Jewish values of inclusion and tikkun olam.
Programs that preserve and honour the memory of the Holocaust for all Australians – that make remembrance a part of a broader culture of social justice – and that document and provide accessibility to the rich history of our local community for future generations.
Programs that provide the foundations of Jewish identity through education outreach to public schools, student travel to Israel, assistance for families who would otherwise not be able to afford a Jewish education and tertiary programs that develop our future educators.
Programs that safeguard the physical safety of our community and communal institutions, that combat antisemitism and promote a culture of tolerance, and that advocate for Jewish community in the media and in Australian politics.
