THANK YOU

for your generous support of The Greensboro Jewish Federation.

 

Your tax-deductible donations help support the Jewish people locally and globally, financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We encourage you to not only contribute, but get involved in our active and dynamic community.

  • For over 80 years, the Greensboro Jewish Federation has been reaching out to those in need, finding innovative ways to engage with our community and making sure Good grows at home, in Israel and around the world.

    But Good doesn’t just happen on its own. It comes from our supporters, who are dedicated to the promise of a flourishing Jewish future.

    Together with your support, The Greensboro Jewish Federation is Here For Good.

Did you know one aspect of the CARES Act includes charitable giving incentives?  

 

To bolster charitable giving in a time of economic downturn, a $300 above the line tax deduction for charitable giving, is eligible to both itemizers and non-itemizers alike. The CARES Act also raises itemized charitable contribution deduction limits for individuals who itemize their deductions and claim the charitable contribution deduction. The recently enacted Consolidated Appropriation Act of 2021 further extends this benefit permitting a charitable deduction of up to $600 on 2021 federal income tax returns for couples filing jointly.

  • EMPOWERING YOU

    In response to our community’s giving preferences, the Annual Campaign has transitioned to a 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 donation, qualifies for one of the campaign giving levels.

Jewish Family Services Helps Our Community

Indigent Burial Fund: The Greensboro community created an indigent burial fund to fulfill the mitzvah of assuring every Jew a dignified funeral. This is one of the highest forms of tzedakah.
