There are many ways to support us. Discover yours here.

The Annual Campaign, for the Jewish Federation of Durham Chapel Hill, is the most instrumental vehicle in allowing us to do good for the community.  We strive to provide programs and services that help those in need, provide opportunities for people to engage, and offer a sense of belonging to a vibrant community.  Thanks to donors like you, and the generosity of our community, the Federation is able to continually expand our reach and help an increasing number of programs, services, individuals, and organizations.  More giving, means more good!

Support a Program – Donations

The Federation accepts donations which allow donors charitable opportunities that can directly align with a specific program or area of interest to them.  This support provides underwriting for the wide range of programs and services we offer the community.  Options include: Jewish Family Services, Israel Center, BRIDGES-Inclusion Programming, Camp Scholarships, and Cultural Arts Programs

To donate, click HERE. Select “Donations” and select a specific program to which you’d like to give (example Donations – Jewish Family Services). 

Honor Someone through Support – Make a Tribute

Tribute gifts are a powerful tool to commemorate an accomplishment, important event, or life of a loved one. These gifts are a meaningful and unique way to both pay tribute to an individual, while extending support to the Federation and our efforts.  There are two types of Tribute Gifts:

  • Memorial (honoring someone who has passed away)
  • Honor (honoring the accomplishment of someone)

These timeless gifts provide crucial financial aid to our organization and allow us to continue to thrive. Tributes can be designated to the Federation, JCC, Jewish Family Services, Israel Center, BRIDGES Inclusion Programming, Camp Scholarships or a Fund at the Jewish Community Foundation.  Your tribute honoree will receive a personalized card notifying them of your generous donation and they will be recognized in our annual honor roll, cementing their name among our cherished supporters.

To make a tribute, click HERE. Select “Tributes” and select a specific program to which you’d like to give (example Tributes – Camp Scholarships).

Why Sponsor the Levin JCC/Jewish Federation of Durham-Chapel Hill?

We are a socially responsible agency that supports philanthropic and community-building activities throughout Durham and Chapel Hill. Locally, hundreds of thousands of dollars are spent annually to help those in need – children in need of summer camps, people struck by personal or economic tragedy and the frail elderly. Many of our programs are driven by hundreds of our volunteers who are dedicated to making Durham-Chapel Hill a better place for all of us. Your sponsorship has the potential to reach over 15,000 of the most desirable households in the Durham-Chapel Hill community and gives you direct access to a group of professional, well-educated, socially active, family-oriented, and relatively affluent local consumers and opinion-makers. Additionally, your sponsorship dollars help support our growing line of social and cultural programming.
