Giving Tuesday is the new Super Sunday!


Even though Giving Tuesday is the new Super Sunday, you don’t have to wait until December 16 to make your pledge! You can make your pledge TODAY and show you care about our Jewish community.
Now more than ever, we need to come together in support of one another.

Your gift will:

Feed the local hungry
Help the unemployed get back on their feet
Provide support for families with special needs
Support Jewish education

The Annual Campaign has been the glue that has held the greater South Bend Jewish community together for more than 70 years and will continue to do so.
Please, on behalf of the men, women, and children who are in desperate need of a better life, commit to the Annual Campaign and become part of the solution.
We are here for the Jewish People…and we will never let them down.

A gift of $6/month:
·  Gives a Jewish children's book every month to TWO local children for a YEAR
·  Provides a hot lunch for a senior attending our monthly Lunch 'n' Learn program for a year
·  Sponsors a year of monthly movie nights

Wherever there’s a need, Federation is there.

Whether it is to embrace, connect, or support Jews locally and globally, we are there.

Through social services, fundraising, community outreach, and programming, we are there.

Our traditions may vary; our identity is both communal and unique, but when there are Jews in need, everyone counts: immigrants, entrepreneurs, survivors, and volunteers.

What We Do With Your Gifts

We help provide social services locally and internationally. Whether it’s humanitarian services to help Jewish communities rebuild after a natural disaster or a providing access to a food pantry in South Bend, it matters.

We support Jewish education and experiences. Whether it’s helping youth in western Europe learn about their Jewish roots, or helping a Michiana resident attend a Jewish camp, it matters.

We share in the successes of our fellow Jews. Whether it’s helping support small loans for new immigrants in Israel, or coming together to celebrate Purim as a community, it matters.

No Gift of Help is Too Small

It’s because of you that we can continue to put our values into practice every day. You matter.

By doing something that matters and contributing to our campaign, you are helping us. Whether it's local or international, your gift makes a difference and helps Jews in need.

You can make a designated gift if you are passionate about a local program or you can give a undesignated gift for the most impact.

It doesn't take much. All we ask is for your most generous donation. Anything you can give helps support our hundreds of ongoing efforts here and around the world.
