Tribute Gifts

Tribute funds are a wonderful way to acknowledge a simcha, birthday, wedding, b'nai mitzvah, anniversary, graduation or other life cycle event, or to honor or memorialize a loved one or colleague. Tribute funds provide critical funding for specific JCC programs and services. Your contribution to tribute funds through honor and memorial gifts helps to build the funds' income over time. There are over 30 tribute funds (listed below) at the JCC to which you may direct a donation or you may wish to establish your own fund.*

When you give to a Tribute Fund, the JCC will send a personalized card to the individual or family that you designate, acknowledging your thoughtful tribute on their behalf (omitting the gift amount). You may make a donation by phone at 317-251-9467 or in person at the JCC or by mail.

Be inspired. Give generously.
