Why we fundraise

We include all and ensure our services are available to as many as need us, but not without your help. It is impossible to sustain a Center for Jewish life by relying solely on the membership dues and program fees. You are a partner in our success. If it were not for the generosity of our donors, it would be impossible for us to welcome and include those who wish to participate but cannot afford to do so.

  • We are a community center that offers scholarships to preschool and camp families in need
  • We are a community center that provides services and support for children and adults with special needs
  • We are a community center that offers cultural arts programs for the entire community
  • We are a community center that serves kosher meals, and offers exercise and wellness programs and referral services to seniors
  • We are a community center that makes space available to other community groups at little or no cost

You may select from following options to direct your gift to the Bender JCC:

  • Where the need is greatest at the Center
  • Scholarships
  • Senior Adults
  • Special Needs & Inclusion
  • Arts & Culture
  • Jewish Experiences for Families & Young Children
  • Health & Fitness
