The Swig Family Fund 
for Jewish Community Involvement

In 1988, the Mae and Benjamin Swig Fund for Jewish Community Involvement was established as part of the Jewish Community Endowment Fund of the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties. It is a restricted fund dedicated to seed funding programs that provide innovative models for the involvement of individuals in the Jewish community. The expressed goal of the founders was to establish an Academic Consortium to convene Jewish academics at the major educational institutions in Northern California in order to bring them into a closer relationship with the organized Jewish community.
