Who are Development Volunteers?

The Jewish Federation of St. Louis partners with 200 Development Volunteers (DVs) to raise funds for the Community Campaign. These volunteers are committed leaders in the Jewish community who reach out to their networks to inspire others to support the important work of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. Thanks to the dedication of DVs, we are able to provide critical services in the local community, Israel and abroad.
