Ways to Give
Double your donation -- painlessly! Many local corporations match the charitable donations of their employees. If your employer has this program, it's a wonderful way to double the value of your gift.
Here are some of the corporations in our community who offer matching gifts:
Special Corporate Opportunities
IBM Community Grant
If you are a JFS SV volunteer who works at IBM, you can easily request funds for JFS. IBM has a grant program it offers to registered ODC (On Demand Community) volunteers who log 40+ volunteer hours, volunteer at least five months, and complete a grant application. You may be eligible to earn an IBM Community Grant for up to $1,000 in cash or up to $7,500 in technology for Jewish Family Services. Check it out!
Cisco Employee Matching Grant Program
Cisco recognizes Jewish Family Services as one of their matching gift charities. Cisco employees can double the impact of their donations to JFS. For more information, contact Cisco directly, or
Intel Donates to JFS SV When Employees Volunteer Hours
Intel employees, are you a JFS SV volunteer? Intel has a volunteer matching grants program where for every 20 hours worked by any single (or combination) of Intel employees for a non profit organization, Intel donates $200 to that organization. Volunteers can even count travel time and prep time, too.
Join JFS SV volunteer and Intel employee, Dale Rutz, and help JFS. It’s easy! Call Mindy Berkowitz for more information.
