Friends of the J Campaign

 

Building community is at the heart of everything we do at the JCC and donations to the Friends of the J campaign make a big difference.

  • Donations help open the door to our wonderful programs like JCC Day Camp, early childhood education and afterschool programs. Last year, more than 80 children benefited from need-based financial assistance through our scholarship programs.

  • Donations help more people discover our programs and services. Last year our basketball leagues, fitness classes and Cultural Arts programs including the film and author series reached more people and participation continues to increase.

  • Donations launch new programs. The MakerSpace, the Rothberg Climbing Wall, Sticky Fingers, culinary classes and the Great Big Challah Bake as part of a global celebration of Shabbat engage people of all ages and backgrounds.

  • Donations enable us to partner with other local agencies to bring special programming to the J like our new partnership with Chapel Haven and Senior Day at the J in partnership with Mary Wade and The Towers.

Friends are welcome to give to the JCC throughout the year but November 15-January 15 is a particularly special time to make a donation. During this period, anyone who donates a minimum of $100 will be entered into the Friends of the J Raffle (see prizes below)!
