JCC Kavod Program

A more personal way to manage your JCC tribute contributions!

The Kavod Program will make the process of acknowledging lifecycle events with tribute donations easier and will provide you with more personalized service. Kavod is the Hebrew word for “honor,” and best describes your caring contributions in honor or memory of your loved ones.

With a minimum initial contribution of $180, you can open a Kavod account. Throughout the year, whenever you wish to send a tribute, you will contact us (through our online form, an email, or a phone call) and we will send out your desired tribute, keeping an accurate record of your funds. You only have one original charitable contribution to track for your tax purposes – one check, one credit card charge – rather than many small donations. Each tribute you send can be earmarked to any one of our programs or funds.

If you are ready to join the Kavod Program, click below on the Contribute Now button. If you have questions or comments, please contact Ruth Wallace, Individual Giving Manager, at rwallace@jccmilwaukee.org or 414-967-8233.
