Our Community Engaged

Mandel JCC is a community center that impacts people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Each has a unique relationship with The J that changes through their life cycle. Those individual experiences collectively make up The J’s history and inform our future. For 75 years, The J has played a significant role in helping our community thrive.

Your Impact

Personal journeys shape our story. Friendships. Learning. Connections. Laughter. Sharing. Memories. Watch how our community has been impacted through the generous support of our donors.

Why Give

A gift to Mandel JCC advances our important mission of keeping our community connected and fostering growth, health and well-being. Membership and program fees cover a small portion of The J’s operational costs. By joining our donor family, we can ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or ability, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Plan Your Legacy

Legacy gifts make lasting impacts. Each of us has our reason for making thoughtful gifts to charities throughout our lifetime. A legacy gift is a way to ensure that the values you cherish are handed down through generations.

Ways to Give

Supporting the mission and the programs at Mandel JCC can be done through a variety of ways, including cash contributions as one-time or recurring gifts; donating in honor or memory of someone special in your life; creating donor or endowment funds; leaving a legacy gift and more. It’s not about the Zeros. A gift of any size can make a big impact over time.

Annual Campaign

Your journey shapes our story. No matter your age, background or ability, The J is here for you. Because of our cherished donors, we have learned that we are able to maintain vital connections with our members and program participants during good and challenging times. It is through year-round financial support and donations to our annual campaign that we can provide meaningful and engaging programming. By making a tax-deductible gift, your generous donation helps the Mandel JCC continue to have immeasurable impact on the quality of life for children, families and adults over many generations!


We are celebrating our successes during a year of recovery and rebuilding post-pandemic. We journeyed together through an uncertain landscape with adaptation and flexibility. We are rejoicing as our community continues to come together to support one another.

Meet the Beckers

Cathy and Paul Becker are naturally social people – Cathy, a grade school teacher, and Paul, a psychologist. When thinking about retirement, the couple knew that Mandel JCC would be the ideal place to exercise and stay social and engaged in the community.

“It feels a little bit like home”
