Many companies in the Syracuse area have Matching Gift Programs, which encourage charitable giving by their employees. Under these programs, companies match gifts — often dollar for dollar or even two dollars to one — that individuals make to non-profit, tax-exempt organizations. Your gift to the JCC may qualify. Please check with your company to determine eligibility requirements.
To commemorate special occasions, including births, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, marriages, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or to celebrate and honor the memory of a loved one, the JCC welcomes tax-deductible gifts to one of our many endowment or special funds. The JCC will send an acknowledgement card to the individual (or next of kin) in whose name the contribution is made. Tribute cards recognize someone special and help the JCC. For more information contact Nancy Kasow at 445-2360.
Public support is imperative to the survival of the JCC. The center depends on these donations for a full 7% of its annual budget. Information about making an end-of-year donation will be sent to you in early December.
Barry Lewis, a JCC Supporter, established the Bobbi Epstein Lewis Free Loan Memorial Fund in honor of his wife as a way to aid individuals and families in the Syracuse area. In establishing this fund, Lewis hopes to be of assistance to those in need by providing interest free loans to individuals. For more information about the Fund, contact Nancy Kasow at 445-2360.
