Current Initiative 

2023 will mark the 1046h summer of the Workum Fund. The Fund has served the Workum Summer Intern Program for over twenty years. This eight-week program provides college students with paid internships in Jewish Communal Agencies throughout the Greater Cincinnati Area. 


As work experience is critical to college students' success after graduation, the Workum Fund recognizes this program as the best way to meet the needs of today's college students. 


Many former interns have used the experiences gained in their Workum Internships as springboards for careers in nonprofit associations. Agencies have hired former Workum Interns for permanent positions after graduation as well. This attests to the quality and professionalism of our students. You can hear from past interns here. 


The Workum Fund provides cultural and educational advancement to young men and women in the Greater Cincinnati Area through the Summer Intern Program. As the fund is supported through donations, it collects and receives gifts and bequests to support its programs. The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati also partially-funds Workum. In order to meet the changing needs of college students, the fund adapts as needed to maintain its goals. The Workum Fund is a corporation organized and existing under the General Not For Profit Corporation Act of the State of Ohio.
