EMPOWERING YOU

 

In order to make the Annual Campaign more reflective of and responsive to our community’s diversity and giving preferences, we have transitioned to a more donor-centric campaign. This empowers YOU to choose how you would like to be solicited, make your gift, and be recognized. Donors may give their annual gift as an individual or jointly as a household. Your total campaign gift, whether it be an individual or household gift, qualifies for one of the following campaign giving levels:

The Greensboro Jewish Federation Annual Campaign provides the infrastructure that supports our Jewish community.  It delivers vital funding to sustain the Federation and its partners. Campaign events include outreach programs designed to create camaraderie under the umbrella of Federation and educational programs with esteemed guest speakers. We find innovative ways to engage with our community and make sure Good grows at home, in Israel and around the world. Because the Greensboro Jewish Federation, with your generous support, is Here For Good.

WOMEN'S PHILANTHROPY

 

Women’s philanthropy and the Lion of Judah program play an important role at the Greensboro Jewish Federation. Greensboro’s Lion of Judah program was initiated during a 1983 national UJA/Federation Women’s Mission to Prague and Israel. Many of the Greensboro women on that journey pledged $5,000 each, thus spearheading Greensboro’s involvement in the national Federation Lion of Judah “sisterhood.” Since that time, the program has since grown to over 50 proud Lions, active in many facets of philanthropy at the Federation.

 

The Lion of Judah program continues at the same minimum gift level of $5,000 for individuals. A combined household gift of $5,000 or more would also qualify a woman to be considered a Lion, if so desired. We wish to maintain the pride and recognition that comes with achieving the Lion of Judah giving level, while encouraging more participation.

2022 CAMPAIGN CO-CHAIRS
Ron Yardenay and Elizabeth Strasser

 

Ron Yardenay has been a member of the Greensboro Jewish Community since 1994 when his family moved here from Israel. Growing up in the area, he has experienced the Federation's impact on the community first-hand. Ron is a board member for J-Triad, a GFLI graduate, and has previously served as an adviser for Greensboro's BBYO chapter. His role as co-chair for the Partnership2Gether program helps  strengthen American Jewry's relationship to Israel; something he is personally very excited about.

 

Elizabeth Strasser attended Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and was very involved with the youth group. Four years after graduating from Wingate University, Elizabeth and her husband, Joe, were married in an interfaith ceremony, and now have three kids at B’nai Shalom Day School: Tyler, Maddie, and Grant. Strasser has participated in both the Israel and Germany missions with the Federation, and co-chaired the Civil Rights Journey. She has been an active volunteer at B’nai Shalom as the head of the Parent Teacher Committee and co-chair of two Cadillac Dinners. Although she has never converted to Judaism, she has learned so much in the many years she has been with Joe.
