Life & Legacy

It’s never too early to think about how you can perpetuate your Jewish values for future generations by making a legacy promise to the organizations that are important to you. The Life & Legacy initiative* provides a way for loyal JFCS supporters and donors to help ensure the sustainability of the agency for the generations that will follow. When you make a legacy promise, it announces to the world the principles YOU stand for by sustaining our organization.

See our Life & Legacy page for more information. To discuss this unique opportunity further, please contact Helaine Isaacs at (609) 987-8100 ext. 104.

*Life & Legacy is a partnership program with The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and local Jewish nonprofit organizations, including JFCS.

JFCS Awarded $25,000

JFCS is happy to announce that it has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation President’s Grant fund of the Princeton Area Community Foundation!

In the spring of 2015, JFCS undertook expansion of its offices including the physical space of the Kosher food pantry. The funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation President’s Grant fund of the Princeton Area Community Foundation will be used to purchase healthy and fresh food items (e.g. fruits, vegetables, eggs and dairy products) which cannot be collected through traditional community food drives.
