Giving Options

Many Paths, One Destination

At JCS, we recognize that our donors, like our clients, come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. That’s why we offer flexible giving options. You can make an unrestricted donation, designate a program that holds meaning for you, honor a loved one, or contribute in other ways.

GIVE TO THE ANNUAL FUND

Your annual donations directly benefit individuals and families throughout greater Rhode Island. Gifts are applied to services where the need is greatest.

DESIGNATE A PROGRAM OR SERVICE

Those affected by a particular program area, such as housing or senior care, often like to earmark funds to help others facing those same issues.

JOIN THE FRIENDS OF JEWISH SENIORS

The Friends of Jewish Seniors provide vital fundraising and volunteer coordination for our social service programs. It costs just $15 a year to join.

HONOR OR REMEMBER A LOVED ONE

You can make a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one, or to celebrate a special event. We’ll send a beautiful tribute card to the recipient of your choice.

CREATE A LASTING LEGACY

Through the Legacy Society, you can bring hope to future generations of those in need by naming JCS as a beneficiary or establishing an endowment fund.

DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT WITH GIFT MATCHES

Many employers offer matching gifts for donations to registered nonprofits. Check with your employer to see whether they will match your gift to JCS.

Unique Naming Opportunities

In addition to our regular giving options, JCS has introduced a variety of naming opportunities as part of our new fundraising campaign to build on programs that support our expanding client base.

We have been fortunate to receive funds from the Grace K. & Wesley S. Alpert Charitable Foundation, allowing us to purchase and name our new JCS headquarters the Grace K. & Wesley S. Alpert Building. Many additional opportunities are still available, from purchasing mezuzzot to naming an office space, a position or an entire program.

Gifts of $1,000 and up will receive recognition on our donor wall. Gifts of $10,000 and up will be commemorated with a plaque as well as recognition on our donor wall. All gifts are payable over 3–5 years and will receive sponsorship benefits based on giving levels at our Past Present Future celebration on May 5, 2019.

For more information or questions about naming options, call Sara Ades Goodwin, Director of Major Gifts, at (401) 331-1244.

“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful care my mother receives. It has enabled us to keep her living at home. It has given her the social interaction she was lacking. It has also given me tremendous peace of mind to know that she is in a safe environment being well cared for while I am at work.”

Make a Difference

Whatever donation path you choose, your gift to JCS will make a difference in someone’s life. Any amount is valuable to a struggling family, a homebound senior, a teen seeking counseling, or a caregiver in need of housing options for a loved one.
