Donor Thank You


The Bring Hope to Life campaign was launched in 2015 to ensure the current and long-term viability of JFS so that the agency could maintain vital programs, enhance services in response by community needs, and ensure impact for future generations. The campaign focused on three core elements: need, growth, and innovation.

We are grateful to the many generous JFS supporters who responded with significant gifts to this campaign. Thank you for bringing hope to life for those in need in our community—today and for generations to come.
