Donate to the J Today!

Your investment or money or time empowers us to meet the ever-changing needs of our center and helps provide quality, accessible programming and a safe, inclusive environment that inspires and supports meaningful connections throughout our community. There are several ways you can contribute:

  • Enjoying the J.  Your membership, enrollment in camp, educational classes, and other programming allows us to keep offering programming to everyone, and extending scholarship to at-risk populations.
  • Volunteering.  From helping us weed our gardens, to making phone calls, we’re always looking for dedicated volunteers.
  • Join our Chai Society.  Become a member of our annual campaign and help us make lasting change in the Pioneer Valley.
  • Invest in one of our endowment funds.
  • Make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one. A tribute card will be sent with acknowledgment of your gift.
  • Donate your in-kind items to the J.

Your generosity will help support our mission of enriching lives and connecting to our Jewish identity, now and into the future.  For more information about programs at the Springfield JCC, call 413-739-4715 or email Bonnie Cox, Development Associate, at
