Over the years, endowment funds have enabled the JCC to enhance our programs and services and respond to challenges within our community. We thank our donors for making a commitment to our agency and our future. Charitable contributions of all types are deeply appreciated, since they enable the JCC to sustain an extensive variety of activities and services. Please consider establishing a personal endowment and help us address important needs in our community.

Types of Endowments
Endowment funds allow you to give in personal and creative ways. They can be named to:

  • Honor or remember someone meaningful in your life
  • Recognize a family member or friend on a special occasion
  • Meet your personal philanthropic goals or the goals of a family foundation
  • Support a cause that is important to you by directing the gift for a distinct JCC service or program

How to Establish an Endowment Fund
For a charitable, tax-deductible donation of $10,000 or more, you can establish a personal endowment fund at the JCC. We are continually evolving to meet the needs of our community and we pride ourselves on our ability to offer programs and services that enrich our members’ lives. We invite you to consider establishing an endowment and help ensure the JCC will be a source of strength for the entire community for generations to come.

To set up an endowment or to learn more about giving opportunities at the JCC, please contact Alison Holzberg Kenny at 201.408.1405 or akenny@jccotp.org.
