According to research conducted by the non-profit Institute for Jewish and Community Research, 25 percent of the largest donations that are received by educational institutions are from Jewish donors. More than 70 percent of grants that Jewish foundations make for humanitarian needs go to non-Jewish causes. Tzedakah as a Jewish ethical and religious principle has a profound effect not only on the survival and success of Jewish charities, but upon the health of North American humanitarian causes in general.
