Other Ways to Give

Become a member—forever.

When you become a Member in Perpetuity, you state clearly to your friends and family that you believe in and care about the future of the Jewish community.  Your gift of $18,000 (or $22,500) over five years ensures that the wonderful Jewish experiences that the JCC offers will continue and prosper.  

Donate an auction item

Providing items for our silent auctions is an excellent way to familiarize the community with your product or service.  Because we host a number of silent auctions each year, we recommend that you submit three items to maximize your exposure – for example, three $100 gift certificates to your restaurant.  

Direct your United Way workplace giving

If your workplace participates in the Heart of Florida United Way’s fundraising efforts, consider directing your giving to the Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando.  Simply write in the following information: David Wayne, JCC of Greater Orlando, 407-645-5933 and your contribution will help us build community, strengthen family life, and promote Jewish values.

Create an endowment fund

An endowment is established through a tax-deductible gift,  The principal of the fund is invested and only its income is used to provide the designated support. Since the principal is never touched, the fund becomes a perpetual source of funds for the program you’ve chosen.  

Sponsor a program or event

Your business can make a difference in the lives of children and adults in our community by sponsoring a program or service and gaining visibility at the same time.  The opportunities are endless — you can help seniors get out of their homes and attend a program by sponsoring transportation, or you could sponsor a child to go to camp.  From sports leagues to summertime events, cultural performances to family nights, your business can be recognized as a hero in our community.

Make a planned gift

A planned gift offers tax and estate planning benefits to you and other family members, as well as to the JCC.  Consider a bequest (a gift in your will), a charitable remainder trust (when property or money is donated, but you continue to use the property and/or receive income from it while living), or setting up a life insurance policy designating the JCC as a beneficiary.  

For more information on any of these giving opportunities, contact David Wayne, executive director, at 407-621-4042.
