jewish community center of greater baltimore


Dear Members, We are thrilled to announce a new win/win member initiative with our partners at THE ASSOCIATED: The Jewish Federation of Baltimore. Beginning this December and running through June 2011 our members will receive $50 in JBucks when making their first gift of $36 or more to THE ASSOCIATED Annual Campaign. THE ASSOCIATED supports the JCC by allocating approximately 2.5 million dollars to our center each year. These funds help to support the programs and services that we provide for our most vulnerable populations (including the frail elderly, teens at risk, children and adults with special needs and members who have lost their jobs.) THE ASSOCIATED also supports a myriad of Jewish organizations in Baltimore and around the world. There are several ways to make your contribution to THE ASSOCIATED. You can make your gift in person on Super Sunday (December 12) or on Mitzvah Day (December 24) at the Weinberg Park Heights JCC. You can also donate at the cashiers’ window of either building or online at www.associated.org/jbucks. This offer is good until June 30, 2011. Once your donation has been processed, you will receive your $50 JBucks certificate which can be used for numerous JCC services including membership renewal, camp, preschool, classes, leagues, person training and much more. It’s a great opportunity to help others while helping yourself at the same time!
