We know that many local Jewish organizations invest their endowment funds with CJP, and CJP does not currently provide an investment option that is fossil fuel free. The choice to go with fossil-fuel-free investing is not only morally elevated but also fiscally responsible. With that in mind, we have aligned around a strategy that is about mobilizing multiple Jewish organizations to reach out to CJP in a collaborative manner with a request that they begin offering this option along with their existing investment products.
It is being called the "Dear CJP" campaign, and it is about mobilizing a steady stream of these requests so that the CJP gets a very clear message that there is a strong interest in this offering from the community. If organizations were offered an option to align their investments with their values in this way, they would choose it with enthusiasm. The Call to Action is to have individuals mobilize their organization, institution or congregation to reach out to CJP with a cordial request that they begin to offer an endowment investment option that is fossil fuel free.
Our goal is to have at least ten Jewish organizations reach out to CJP with this request by the end of this calendar year. The committee of local environmental activists connected with this include JCAN-MA and Dayenu
"Office hour" session is offered for anyone who wants to learn more, connect with others trying to move this forward, and think through challenges and next steps.
