Major Gifts Society

What is the Major Gifts Society?

Established in 2012, the JFS Major Gifts Society is comprised of leadership donors who in a given year make a minimum contribution of $10,000 or more to support JFS MetroWest or a particular JFS MetroWest program. Members of the JFS Major Gifts Society make contributions which perpetuate the values that are important to the donor family, while also inspiring others and, as a result, affirm the absolute best in Jewish tradition. In making their contribution, members of the JFS Major Gifts Society help JFS to fulfill its vision of serving as the premier agency within the MetroWest New Jersey area providing for the social service and mental health needs of the greater community with unparalleled professionalism, humanity and respect for all who seek its support.
