Tribute Giving

Tribute funds are a wonderful way to acknowledge a simcha, birthday, wedding, b’nai mitzvah, anniversary, graduation or other life cycle event, or to honor or memorialize a loved one. Your contribution to tribute funds through honor and memorial gifts helps to build the funds’ income over time and provide critical funding for specific programs and services.

There are over 20 tribute funds at the JCC (listed below), or you may wish to establish your own fund. When you give to a tribute fund, the JCC will send a personalized card to the individual or family that you designate, acknowledging your thoughtful tribute on their behalf.

Suggested minimum donation: $25.
