Now, more than ever, we are Here for Good.
The need for Jewish human services is growing. That’s why Jewish Federations of North America has created the Human Services Relief Matching Fund – from now until December 31, every eligible dollar given to our Annual Campaign will be matched by 50%, but only if you act by the end of the year.
This money will go directly to addressing the human service needs brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, including food security, financial assistance, and mental health counseling. Just imagine what that means in human terms. If $100,000 can enable 20 families to keep a roof over their heads, then the match will enable 10 more families to keep their homes. If a gift normally feeds 100 children for a month, with the match it will feed 150 children.
It’s times like now we are reminded of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ purpose. We’ve been here for over 119 years to respond to needs here, in Israel, and beyond. How do we meet those needs? Through our Annual Campaign, the lifeblood of Federation’s efforts.
When you give to the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, you are part of something larger than yourself. You are connected to others who believe in a shared responsibility to our community. Federation changes lives. We keep a finger on the pulse of the greatest needs of our Jewish community by gathering diverse perspectives, and we collaborate with our community partners to meet those needs. It’s more than Tzedakah. Federation is people working together and leveraging our collective resources to achieve common goals.
Jewish Federation of St. Louis is a proud member of United Way, a Better Business Bureau Accredited charity, and a 4-star rated charity by Charity Navigator, their highest possible rating.
