This past Sunday, Dec. 3, volunteers were in the JFEC offices making phone calls to potential donors to the Annual Campaign from whom we had not yet heard. We followed up on December 5 and were able to reach some of those donors we missed on Sunday.
There is still time to make your donation. Connect with our secure website before December 31 -- https://app.theauxilia.com/pay/thejewishfederationofeasternct or mail your check made payable to JFEC and mail to 400 New London Tpke, Norwich, CT 06360 / memo line – Campaign.
Please remember that although our hearts are in Israel, our local Jews need the Federation to keep on providing the programs and services we all count on.
We’re happy to tell you that the Campaign thermometer has moved from the $250,000 we reported last month to $310,000 as of this printing; getting closer to the Federation’s campaign goal of $450,000.
Again, a reminder that we have been able to secure matching funds, so that when you increase your gift over what you gave last year, that increase will be matched and double the impact of that increase.
Please read the article, in this issue, addressing the method of using appreciated stock to fund your donation and other ways to give.
Thank you for your continued support!!!
Sema Stein and Tom Smith
JFEC Campaign Chair & Vice Chair
