Donation FAQs

Why is my gift important?

The JCCSF is a non-profit and we are dependent on donations, membership fees and registration fees to pay our creative and dedicated staff that brings you all the innovative programming and activities you enjoy.

The JCCSF At the Heart of It All Campaign is a way for us to live our purpose – as an institution and as individuals – and maintain our integrity in the face of dramatically changed circumstances. With it, we will emerge stronger than ever.

Does my contribution really make an impact at the JCCSF?
