Since our founding in 1892, the generous support of our community has made the work of Jewish Family Service possible. Your gift is part of a generations-long tradition that makes a world of difference today for individuals and families in their most vulnerable moments.
In addition to our compassionate and caring staff, thousands of donors, foundations, community partners and volunteers support the work of Jewish Family Service each year. View our most recent report here.
Join us on May 8, 2023 at the Seattle Sheraton Grand Seattle. The JFS Community of Caring event brings together over 1,000 people in support of JFS. This exciting event tradition grows bigger and better every year. The 2022 Community of Caring luncheon was the most significant fundraising event in the Greater Seattle Jewish community, with contributions in excess of $1,800,000 to support JFS clients, services and programs. Reservations will be available early 2023.
By sponsoring the 2023 Community of Caring fundraiser, you help cover the costs of the event so donations received can fully support individuals and families in need as they gain better well-being, health and stability.
Sponsorship benefits include recognition during the event, social media recognition and in JFS print and digital communications throughout the year. Specific benefits are available upon request.
