STRENGTHENING OUR COMMUNITY For more than 30 years, the Levis JCC has been the cornerstone of Jewish life in our community. It’s a place to connect, to be enriched and to have fun. From babies, children, teens to adults, this is “home” for our whole community. The generosity of our founders and supporters enables the Levis JCC to continuously offer the highest quality programs and services to thousands of individuals and families.

CINDY BERGMAN | Associate Executive Director | 561-852-3253 | cindyb@levisjcc.org

WAYS TO GIVE A gift to the Levis JCC helps ensure the success of our continuum of programs: early childhood education, summer camp, health awareness, special needs, elder care services, sports and wellness, cultural and spiritual programs. There are many ways to support the Levis JCC. • Donate to the Annual Campaign When you give an unrestricted gift to the Levis JCC, you entrust your resources to our staff and lay leaders. That is an honor we take seriously. We carefully direct funds to the programs and services where they are needed most. If you feel passionately about a specific Levis JCC program, supporting it is easy – whether preschool or camp scholarships, special needs, the arts or sports and wellness, giving with your heart is easy and deeply appreciated.

• Become a Community Partner Good corporate citizenship makes great business sense. A partnership with the Levis JCC provides an opportunity to reach our dynamic community of both young families and active mature adults, gaining exposure to thousands of individuals who regularly participate in Levis JCC programs, activities and events, as well as to the broader community at large. Becoming a Community Partner is a commitment you make to help us strengthen our community. There are numerous ways for local businesses to support the Levis JCC. In addition to emerald, sapphire, ruby and diamond sponsorship levels, there are also opportunities to sponsor various events including the Levis JCC Golf Classic, the Annual Fundraiser, Racing With the J (a series of 3 5k race/walks), as well as many events associated with our Betty & Marvin Zale Early Childhood Learning Center, our Marleen Forkas Camps, and our Helene & Roy Schwedelson Special Needs Department. • Send a Tribute Recognizing and honoring life’s milestones with a tribute to the Levis JCC shows you take caring seriously. For joyous and somber occasions alike, making a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, to mark a special anniversary, birthday or simcha is a special way for you to share the love and benefit our community at the same time.

PLANNED GIVING Putting your money where your heart is means giving a gift you will feel great about for years to come. A planned gift to Levis JCC helps build critical resources for our future. The principal of your endowment is invested and remains untouched. The yearly earnings provide resources to fund Levis JCC programs and services. We tailor giving programs to each donor’s financial and real estate planning goals, ensuring that you realize benefits today while providing for future generations.

WHAT WILL YOUR LEGACY BE? What aspects of Jewish life would you like to preserve most – learning, community, worship, caring for those in need or social justice? Through Create a Jewish Legacy, you can leave a lasting personal legacy for generations to come. For more information, please contact:
