We nurture connections between people throughout Greater New Haven. Our building is designed with spaces for people to meet, socialize, share ideas and make connections. Our programs strive to build people to people connections that enrich lives.
Through Friends of the J campaign, we seek to raise funds to sustain some of our most important and impactful programmings. With your help, the JCC will continue to build connections for people across the diverse spectrum of our community.
Friends of the J helps open the door to our wonderful programs like JCC Day Camps, early childhood education and afterschool programs. This is especially so, for the 80 participants who receive needs-based scholarships.
Friends of the J enables us to provide access and programming to adults and children with disabilities.
Friends of the J supports cultural arts; including film, author talks, theatre, and visual arts.
Friends are welcome to give to the JCC throughout the year but November 15 through January 15 is a special time to donate. During this period anyone who donates a minimum of $100 will be entered into the Friends of the J Raffle (see information below). Friends of the J will be celebrated at an event on January 26. Details to follow.
Be a Friend and help us continue to build a better JCC!
