While the country still struggled in the midst of one of the most challenging economic periods in history, we focused on creating new strategies in order to re-engage donors and reach out to our entire Jewish community. Our ambition paid off with the full rollout of our “Donor Choice” program, the “Adopt-A-Project” initiative for country clubs and the creation of the “Pomegranate” program for women donors, which is a brand new level of giving. Looking toward a brighter Jewish future, we began the community-wide marketing of “Create a Jewish Legacy” to further promote planned giving and endowments. And, to reach out to Jews of all ages, we launched our first multi-generational Fedstock festival event which drew more than 7,000 local Jewish residents to Mizner Park for a weekend of first-class entertainment and family fun. Finally, we set a bright, new tone for a rejuvenated Federation by changing our messaging and focusing it on one positive uplifting word: power. You have the power to feed, save, rescue, comfort, inspire, educate…and to change the world. These seeds are sure to bear abundant fruit in the coming years, welcoming more Jews to our Federation family and expanding our good work to ever more people in need. We thank you for your continued support and dedication. Exciting times are on the horizon and each of us feels truly honored to help usher them in. B’ Shalom,

Adopt-a-Project Adopt-A-Project is a unique new opportunity for country clubs, geographic areas and divisions to support a specific project from one of our local and/or international beneficiary agencies. Some of these projects also provide participants with hands-on volunteer experiences. From a reunion luncheon for Holocaust survivors to feeding the hungry in our community to hosting a Passover seder for seniors, Adopt-A-Project has been eagerly welcomed by all.

THE Pomegranate LEVEL The new Pomegranate program, and the pin worn by its members, have been specially created for women who donate a minimum gift of $1,800 to our Annual Campaign. Pomegranate women are invited to special events, luncheons and seminars. Participants are informed of the special meaning behind being a Pomegranate — and all of the goodness that comes with that title. By wearing the stunning sterling pin, Pomegranates are reminded of the Jewish lives we have improved, rescued and renewed. They are also ever mindful of the work that is yet to be done.

CREATE A JEWISH LEGACY This year, we’ve stepped up efforts to promote “Create a Jewish Legacy,” which is a community-wide initiative facilitated by the Jewish Community Foundation of South Palm Beach County (the “Foundation”) to create a stronger, brighter Jewish future locally. Our goal is to promote the establishment of planned gifts to benefit our local agencies, schools and synagogues, the Federation and its international partners. The results could yield hundreds of millions of dollars in endowments that will perpetually fund essential programs and services in our Jewish community, in Israel and around the world. To date, all of our Federation’s founding beneficiary agencies are on board as well as four of the largest local synagogues. We expect additional agencies and synagogues to participate as we continue to promote the program throughout our community.

FEDERATION CAMPUS DEVELOPMENT: Sinai Residences of Boca Raton, a Continuing Care Retirement Community Our Federation’s vision for the future of our campus remains clear and on track. A centerpiece of that vision is development of Sinai Residences of Boca Raton, a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), on a 22-acre parcel at the north end of the Richard & Carole Siemens Jewish Campus. A CCRC offers a blend of: housing, health care, hospitality, recreational and social services; plans include a life-care benefit which offers discounts for independent living residents on assisted living and nursing care. Sinai Residences will have 232 independent living units, 60 assisted living apartments, 60 skilled nursing suites, and 24 studio suites for the memory impaired. After years of planning and following extensive due diligence and feasibility studies, the project is being developed by an independent not-for-profit entity, Federation CCRC Development, LLC, that will be owned by our Federation. The idea originated from the Federation’s

desire to monetize available land on the Federation campus, thereby creating a revenue source for other aspects of our mission. In addition, the CCRC serves a material need within our community. Once stabilized, it can generate a projected annual cash flow ranging from $1.5 to $4 million. The first phase of financing for the Sinai Residences will consist of the issuance of a tax-free $9 million pre-development industrial revenue bond for preconstruction costs over the next 24-36 months. This will fund the cost of pre-marketing for the project, design development and other pre-development costs. The extensive market research conducted for Sinai Residences has been extremely positive, and we are excited to begin the formal pre-marketing phase once the pre-development financing closes in March.  For more information about the Sinai Residences of Boca Raton, please contact Sarah Bitton at 561-852-6015 or sarahb@bocafed.org.
