Campaign for Your J
How would you define Your J?
“This is the place where I find friendship.”
“This is the place where I discover opportunities.”
“This is the place where I build community.”
Last year, the staff and board members of the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center discovered our collective resilience, adaptability, and innovative spirit. We learned that through hard work, abundant thinking, and trusting our decisions, we would reap positive rewards.
We also discovered what we already intuitively knew and expected: The unwavering support and generosity of our community—you—would sustain our work and our agency into the future.
Last year, our community invested in a Strong JCC. This year, let us show you what it looks like when we are strong together. The JCC is here for you to discover, or rediscover — a place where everyone can find personal moments of meaning.
Make an investment in Your JCC — because now, the moment is yours.
When does the campaign end?
While our most concerted efforts will occur through the end of calendar year 2021, you can donate to the Campaign for Your J through the end of our fiscal year, June 30, 2022.
What will my donation support?
In many ways, that is at your discretion. If you choose to invest in Your J with an unrestricted contribution, you allow us to be flexible with your support, allocating dollars to the program or programs that need it most at the time—from Gan Ami Early Childhood Education to programs for older adults. This option offers you the chance to make the greatest overall impact on our community.
However, we recognize that some donors may wish to continue connecting their support to a JCC service area where they find personal meaning. We also offer the opportunity to direct your contribution to the individual program or programs that inspire your philanthropy.
I usually support the JCC scholarship campaign or the Jewish Community Pantry campaign. Will you be asking for another donation as well as this one?
The Campaign for Your J is our sole campaign this year—and embedded within this campaign are all the other campaigns we would normally seek funding for, including the Jewish Community Pantry, the Steve & Shari Sadek Family Camp Interlaken JCC, and scholarships. We know that families are in need of scholarship support now more than ever, and we will continue to distribute that support to families throughout the year.
Can I pay my donation out over the year?
Yes—we can make arrangements to charge your credit card or accept a check, quarterly or even monthly.
Can I make a donation using stock, a Donor Advised Fund, or a retirement fund?
We can work with you to receive funds through any of these vehicles. Please contact Individual Giving Manager Ruth Wallace to discuss your plans: firstname.lastname@example.org., 414-967-8233.
