Please Note

When donating be sure to specify which fund or department the contribution should go to as well as who should receive the acknowledgement. Checks must be made out to the Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley, and a designated fund can be specified on the memo line. Honorees and donors (unless anonymous) will be printed in our monthly newsletter Our Community News.
