Annual Fund - Better Together
Right now our focus is on you and your family and keeping our JCC community safe, healthy and connected. This challenging time for all of us has shed a bright light on the importance of our JCC community and "why we all J."
We J for ourselves and our families. We J for our physical well-being and to stimulate our minds. We J for friendship and fun. We J because we care deeply about our community and the meaningful connections we have made within it.
You have made it abundantly clear that your JCC means so much to you and that you want it to be here for you, your children and your children's children.
Although it is very exciting that our JCC is re-opening in phases, this crisis is far from over for our JCC. In fact, financially, the challenge is only beginning.
As a community, we have proven that we take care of each other and support each other. We have proven that we are better together.
Let's continue to support each other. And please support your JCC.
Your donation ensures that our JCC is here to serve you and to bring community together beyond this crisis into a strong future.
We are better together.

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.
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!
Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a five minute process which must be initiated by the donor / volunteer. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process.
