In Memory or in Honor of a Loved One

A donation to the JCC is a thoughtful way to honor or remember someone special in your life. Gifts can be made to the Annual Fund or to one of several funds established to support a specific program area at the JCC. Donations can be made in memory of a family member, friend or colleague - or in honor of a special event like a birthday, wedding/anniversary, B’nai Mitzvah, promotion, holiday or new baby. All gifts serve as a beautiful tribute and we will mail your designee (or their family) a personalized letter to let them know you have made a gift in their name.

Please choose from one of the options below or for information on donations or tributes, please contact Caren Goldberg, Director of Member Engagement and Development, at [email protected] or 908-889-8800 x236.

My company does not match for religious organizations. Is the JCC considered a religious organization?

The JCC of Central NJ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a non-sectarian social service agency. JCC policies indicate that people of all faiths, races, abilities, ages and incomes are welcomed.  JCC members and guests are not required to disclose their religious affiliation to use the JCC. Unlike a church or a synagogue, the JCC files the IRS 990 each year.

What are volunteer grant programs?

Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving programs in which companies provide monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly.

If you volunteer with us, it's an easy way to provide us with additional financial support!
