Ways to Get Involved


There are many ways you can contribute to the annual campaign

and make a difference in Jewish communities at home and across the globe.

  • Make a Donation

    For the cost of a movie or a dinner out you can help buy textbooks for children, a week of hot meals for a senior or homebound individual, medical treatment for a Ukrainian Jew and much, much more.

  • Give a Recurring Gift

    Help support the Federation on an ongoing basis and become a Sustainer by making a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual gift. Contact Kathi Todd for more information.

  • Create a Tribute

    For weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, birthdays or other special occasions, tributes honor those close to you and help make a difference.

  • Establish a Legacy

    A legacy gift is a simple and meaningful way to ensure a strong Jewish future for our community. Discover the extraordinary impact of life income gifts, gift annuities and other planned giving. Contact Leslie Kozupsky for more information.
