Annual Fund Campaign
Your donation helps to provide thousands in our community with opportunities to benefit from The J's exceptional programs and services, such as: Early Childhood, Fitness, & Aquatics, Mandel JCC Camps, Jewish Life & Culture.
One program in particular is Camp Chai, Camp Wise’s Jewish overnight camp for adults with developmental disabilities. At Camp Chai adult campers have the opportunity to experience all the traditional camp activities including boating, crafts, dancing, swimming, hiking and climbing. Many campers and staff have been attending Camp Chai for years and all would agree, CampWise is the Home of Happiness.
Through campaign dollars raised, we were able to provide over $425,000 in financial assistance to hundreds of families and individuals! With the help of our growing Mandel JCC Donor Family, we are confident we will reach this year’s goal of $145,000!
While we are a membership organization, dues do not cover the full cost of our operations. The majority of dollars raised for the JCC Annual Fund Campaign support a generous financial assistance program for those who cannot afford to pay the full cost of membership dues and program fees.
