By sponsoring the 2020 Community of Caring Luncheon, you ensure donations received at the event can fully support individuals and families in need as they gain better well-being, health and stability. In 2019, corporate sponsorships helped raise more than $1.6 million to support JFS clients, services and programs.
The Luncheon brings together more than 1,100 people from the Greater Seattle Jewish community in support of JFS. Sponsorship benefits include recognition at the event, in a full-page ad in “Jewish in Seattle Magazine” and in JFS print and digital communications throughout the year.
One of the most impactful ways you can participate in the Luncheon is by being a Table Captain. When you bring new people to the Luncheon, you are expanding our community of supporters— essential to the stability and growth of our services.
A Table Captain invites up to 11 people to join them at the Luncheon to learn more about the work of JFS. Family, friends, neighbors and colleagues make excellent potential guests. The suggested minimum donation is $180 and all donations are tax-deductible.
Don’t worry if you can’t fill a table! We can help you fill your table, or you can choose to co-captain a table with a friend.
