The Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut is preparing for its participation in the tenth annual,"Give Local Greater Waterbury & Litchfield Hills Fundraising Campaign."
It is an extraordinary fun and inspiring 36-hour online give-a-thon hosted by Connecticut Community Foundation that brings the community together to raise money and awareness for the vital work of a number of local nonprofit organizations, including the Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut. This year's 36-hour campaign starts at 7:00 AM on April 25th and continues to 7:00 pm on April 26th. During that period you will have the chance to support the Jewish Federation of Western Connecticut by making a donation through the Giving Local link.
Your gift to the Jewish Federation, whether in connection with the give local event or at any other time, allows the Federation to continue its work of addressing the educational, social, spiritual, and physical needs of the Jewish community in Western and Northwestern Connecticut, in Israel and around the world, as well as responding to the needs of our friends and neighbors of all faiths that reside in our catchment area.
Your gift allows us to offer educational scholarships and campership grants. Your gift helps the Federation supply Passover (and other holidays) baskets to families who have to choose between paying their rent or putting food on the table. Your gift helps seniors benefit from socialization from the programs we present. Not only that but the happiness you will derive from helping others can't be quantified.
Donations must be made online during April 25-26 (A link for donations will be forthcoming)
All donations are tax-deductible and the donor will instantly receive a receipt for the contribution.
