Tributes

A Tribute Donation to the JCC is a meaningful way to recognize the special moments or milestones in one’s life or honor the memory of a friend or loved one while supporting the JCC. The recipient will receive a beautiful Tribute card, sent on your behalf, that can include your personal message. You will receive an acknowledgement of your contribution from the JCC.

Donations can be made toward the JCC’s General Fund, to a specific program area, to an existing Endowment Fund, or an area of your choice. Tributes made to the JCC are very important to the J’s ability to serve the community every day.

All Tributes from July 1, 2019 – January 31, 2020
