Incredible programs create passionate supporters, and we love connecting your passion with our programs. If you want to designate your gift, we offer the following program-designated giving.
Early Childhood School: In ECS, more than 175 children carry forward tradition as they explore the modern world. Our award-winning Reggio Emilia program is known as one of the best. Tuition alone does not cover the entire ECS experience. We rely on supporters like you to help make up the difference. A gift to this fund supports teacher salaries, student tuition scholarships and ongoing professional development opportunities.
J Community: From North to Everett, and South to Tacoma, East to Snoqualmie, and West to Bainbridge, our community connection programs, events and holidays welcome the Northwest region to embrace Jewish life and culture. Annually we hold over 35 events that are free and built to drive community and connection. A gift to this fund ensures that everyone is welcome to come and celebrate and that our traditions thrive around the region.
J Camp: J Camp has been a defining time for thousands of campers over the past five decades. Whether it’s their first summer or they’re a seasoned veteran, J Campers build friendships, create memories, connect with the outdoors, and, most importantly, have fun in the sun! J Camp is open to everyone, Jewish or not, and is often, the best summer of their life! At the SJCC we believe that every kid should be able to attend summer camp, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. Last summer we gave over $50,000 away in scholarship funds to families in need, and your gift to J Camp fund ensures those with financial need who want to attend can.
Arts + Ideas: The hub of Jewish life in the greater Seattle area is now the home of an eclectic and invigorating Arts + Ideas program. Programs throughout our season will make you think, laugh until you cry, consider a different side of things, dance the night away, and connect with your community. Your support ensures the SJCC can continue to bring high-caliber programming to the Pacific Northwest.
