GIVING

A commitment to JFCS is a commitment to your community.

Your support of JFCS allows us to continue serving those most in need here in our community through comprehensive social services and innovative programs. When you make a donation to our agency, you can be sure that the gift is directly benefiting our clients – 81₵ of every dollar goes towards program delivery.

SPECIAL GIVING INITIATIVES

The JFCS Women’s Alliance is a group of women committed to addressing hunger in our community. By supporting this new initiative, you will help ensure that those with the greatest need will have access to healthy and nutritious food.

This group began with a handful of women asking “How can we do more?” which became the foundation for a sustainable giving group to support JFCS.

This membership-based collaboration benefits JFCS programs addressing hunger year after year. Over the past two years, 140 Founding & Sustaining Members have raised over $166,000 in support of the JFCS Mobile Food Pantry 

ANNUAL EVENTS

JFCS hosts two annual fundraisers: our gala event takes place in late winter/early spring with proceeds benefiting all agency programs & services, and Wheels for Meals in the fall which directly supports our full range of food programs.
