2019 Annual Campaign
Giving grows community.
As your 2019 Jewish Federation Annual Campaign Co-Chairs, we want to convey that Federation’s job is to raise funds so that our partner agencies can focus on providing the invaluable services they do, both here in New Orleans and overseas. Growing the Annual Campaign means helping more people, after all.
Why It’s Important to Give:
We can bring comfort to those who need it most. These funds have a daily impact on the education of children, the strengthening of family life, the care and comfort of the frail and elderly, and the sustainability of our partnerships here and abroad.
Together, we can help feed the poor in overseas Jewish communities. We can provide them with basic necessities like adequate housing and with critical services like urgent medical care. We can provide relief to victims of natural disasters and global crises. We can fund our local agencies, all of which are committed to supporting and serving people in need within the New Orleans community.
Whether it’s assisting an Ethiopian Jew integrate into Israeli society, offering counseling to the parents of troubled adults here in New Orleans through Jewish Family Service, or promoting the Senior Club program at the Jewish Community Center to value our older population, we facilitate a variety of programs aimed at nurturing the vitality of our community.
Distribution of Funds:
For the 2019 Annual Campaign, we will continue our customary breakdown of 70% local, 30% overseas distribution of funds. Thanks to the involvement of many dedicated volunteers, Federation has low administration costs and is able to direct more than 90% of the Campaign dollars raised to people who need it most.
Goldring Family and Woldenberg Foundations Match:
During the 2019 Annual Campaign, the Goldring Family and Woldenberg Foundations are generously matching all new gifts at 25%. If you are already a donor, an increase to your existing gift will be matched at 25%, with the remainder of your gift matched at 12%. Each dollar will make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
On behalf of our 2019 Campaign Co-Chairs, Jan Miller and Jonny Lake, and the entire Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans, we invite you to join us by making a gift to the 2019 Annual Campaign.
