Increase Your Impact with Monthly Donations!

Consider increasing your impact by donating monthly. A monthly amount, even when smaller than a one-time donation, significantly increases your overall impact over 12 months.

If you typically give $180 each year and switch to $18/month, your contribution for the year increases to $216.

$36/month = $432/year

$54/month = $648/year

$100/month = $1,200/year

Frequently Asked Questions 

What are employee matching gift programs?

Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations.

It's an easy way to double your contribution to us!

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!

How do I request a matching gift or volunteer grant?

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.

Please search our database for company specific information.
