What is the purpose of this campaign?

We are launching an annual “Fund a Need” campaign that focuses on raising funds to benefit JCRC’s vital programming in our efforts to combat hate, stand with immigrants and our most vulnerable neighbors, promote peace for Israel, and engage our community in service. What does “fund-a-need” mean?
It means that you can choose how you want your gift to help! We have varying tangible projects that need funding, and your gift will ensure that our work continues. Will this be in addition to a fundraising gala?
No, just like our “no-show” gala last year, we are looking for people to support our work from the comfort of your own home. We will also be sharing videos and stories of how your generosity is making an impact. Click Here to Fund-a-Need IMG_3882 (1) Copy of Copy of org (9)
