Kavod Program

A More Personal Way to Manage Your JCC Tribute Contributions

The Kavod Program will make the process of acknowledging lifecycle events with tribute donations easier and will provide you with more personalized service. Kavod is the Hebrew word for “honor,” and best describes your caring contributions in honor or memory of your loved ones.

With a minimum initial contribution of $180, you can open a Kavod account. Throughout the year, whenever you wish to send a tribute, you can contact us and we will send out your desired tribute, keeping an accurate record of your funds. You only have one original charitable contribution to track for your tax purposes – one check, one credit card charge – rather than many small donations. Each tribute you send can be earmarked to any one of our programs or funds.
