Each year, JCP provides a wide variety of programs and experiences that enrich the lives of families in lower Manhattan. Our Annual Report illustrates what a remarkable resource JCP has become, and highlights how these accomplishments are only made possible with annual support from you – our community.
And so, we are asking every family to play a critical role in the successful work of JCP; to make a generous, tax-deductible donation to our Annual Campaign.
A gift supports all which JCP offers – from Tot Shabbat to Adult education; from Preschool to Hebrew School; Holiday celebrations and much, much more. You already know what JCP means to your family – education, culture, spirituality and social connections, and a sense of community which each of us values deeply.
To help maintain and grow what JCP brings to families like your own, we ask you to count yourself among our supporters, and make a meaningful contribution to JCP.
Here are some facts about our current fiscal year:
- Within our annual budget, only 74% is covered by program revenues. 26% depends upon donations from families like yours and mine, and every program of JCP depends on them.
- JCP operates in one of the most expensive locations in the country. Excellence is our standard, and we provide the highest quality in schools and programs. Our mission is to make Jewish education and life accessible to an economically diverse community. Many of our Tot Shabbat, Friday night services and other community programs are either free of charge, or offered at very low cost.
- Our Center for Jewish Life is now able to widen its offerings, as so many have long requested. We are developing more Jewish life opportunities for youth and adults, and providing spiritual and life cycle services to a growing number of community families.
- We must raise $1.3 Million to cover our budget this year, and sustain these goals.
We are truly grateful for every donation to JCP, and we wish to count you among those who contribute to JCP as part of their annual charitable activity.
Please take a moment, today, to do your part. To make your gift, you may donate online by clicking the link below. If you prefer, we also invite you to contribute by placing a Journal Ad for our Annual Benefit at www.jcpdowntown.org/benefit.
