This #GivingTuesday, do more.
Over the course of the next week, most of us will be doing more traveling, doing more eating and doing more shopping than at any other time of the year. It is in that spirit that we ask you to do more and join us on December 2 in celebrating #GivingTuesday.
The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC) defines and advances the values, interests and priorities of the organized Jewish community in the public square. In partnership with our Council's 42 member organizations, the interfaith community and our state and local civic leaders, and with your generous support, we are able to do more together than alone.
And as a result we’re:
- Doing more volunteering throughout Greater Boston than ever before. More than 1,000 teens, young professionals and adults are participating in service work through JCRC programs.
- Doing more to enact change on issues of importance to our community. JCRC’s effort, in partnership with the MA Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, resulted in Massachusetts enacting new legislation to prevent gun violence.
- Doing more to ensure that influential individuals and decision makers see JCRC as a trusted partner for conversations about Israel and the Middle East. On December 8th, Jeremy Burton will be leading a delegation of state and local elected officials on a 10 day study tour of Israel.
This #GivingTuesday, a generous anonymous donor has agreed to double the value of your gift by matching contributions made on #GivingTuesday up to $5,000.
Don’t let this match pass you by! On this #GivingTuesday, do more.
