Give Today – Support the JCC
The Jewish Community Center of Greater Buffalo has been part of the Western New York community for nearly 75 years. During that time, it has become the town square of Jewish life and culture where people of all backgrounds come together under one roof to celebrate arts, culture, fitness, and wellness. Because of your support, we have been able to continue mission-critical programs and services for infants, children, families, senior citizens and everyone in between. A donation to the J makes an immediate impact today, and for the future.
Ways to Give
All for One Annual Fund
Every day at the Benderson Family Building and Holland Family Building, we create lasting connections and meaningful moments that bring our community together. While membership dues, program fees, and tuition help to offset some of our costs, it is only part of what is needed to keep our JCC financially strong. Every gift of any amount to the All for One Annual Fund provides the unrestricted support necessary to inspire the success of our mission across the entire organization.
Restricted Program Gifts
You can support any of our programs with a restricted gift. From Camp Centerland and the Early Childhood Center to the Jewish Repertory Theatre, Aquatics, and the Tree of Life Playground, you can restrict your gift for a specific purpose.
On the donation page, select the program you would like to support from the “Designation” drop down menu.
Life and Legacy: Assuring Jewish Tomorrows
LIFE & LEGACY® is a collaborate initiative that helps individuals and families create legacy gifts, providing a permanent source of support for the Jewish causes we care about in Western New York. Founded on the principle that all of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, can make an enduring impact, this program ensures that you will be remembered by those who directly benefit from your generosity as well as those who will be inspired by your example for future generations.
The Foundation for Jewish Philanthropies, in partnership with the Jewish Community Center, was selected to join 71 other communities across North America to participate in this national Jewish legacy giving initiative. To-date the initiative has secured more than 30,000 permanently endowed commitments amounting to more than $1 Billion.
