We have faced adversity before, and we have overcome it. With your help, we will do it again.

Throughout our history, we have never faced a time like this. For more than 22 years, the Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Jewish Community Center has brought people together in a one-of-a-kind place, a home away from home, where new friendships are made and old friends re-connect. Traditions are celebrated and community is created. 


Inspired by you and through the remarkable resilience our community has already shown, we have created the JCC Sustainability Fund. It is a way to even more effectively harness the courage and compassion that has helped our community – and use it to ensure we emerge even stronger from this unsettling time period in our lives. 

In the best of times, the JCC relies on the trust and support of generous donors who believe in us, our mission and the work we do. We need your help and support now more than ever as we raise $200,000 by year-end. We have already secured a 1:1 Matching Grant of $100,000. Every dollar raised by Sunday, October 23rd will double. Your donations make a tremendous impact at the JCC and in the community we serve.

Together, we have built a very special place. Together, we have lifted each other up. And together, we will ensure that our future shines just as powerfully as our past.
