Federation provides partial scholarships for Jewish camps and teen Israel experiences; support of religious education for all ages at our local synagogues; and support for the Naples BBYO chapters of AZA & BBG.
The Jewish Federation of Collier County is so grateful to those who have been calling in with credit card payments and sending in checks for Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. 100% of the relief monies that are being collected are going to the hurricane relief efforts.
The monies collected for Hurricane Irma are being distributed to the various organizations and synagogues here in Collier County.
Hurricane Irma swept up the southwest coast of Florida and tried to blow away our beautiful piece of paradise. But she was unsuccessful- we are here to stay. Hurricane Irma did, in fact, do considerable harm to our community. We will need to begin a strong rebuilding process as soon as possible. Thankfully, as far as we know, no lives were lost.
Damage to homes and property were sustained locally and as a result, we anticipate many needs in the days to come. Federation is here for you.
We know that it will take time for us to evaluate and assess what all the needs will be. This is when our community comes together for the greater good. In anticipation of those needs, both human and structural, we are creating the Hurricane Irma Relief Fund for the Greater Naples/Marco Island Jewish community. 100% of the money donated to this fund will be utilized to rebuild the lives of our families, to help our local agencies continue their great services, and to assist congregations who serve our faith community.
We can only do all this with YOUR help. We need your help to rebuild quickly and effectively.
This is a special needs campaign, in addition to your usual commitment to Campaign 2017. This fund is separate from the annual Campaign. Please remember to support Campaign 2017, and even consider increasing your gift, so we will be able to continue doing the good work of our Jewish Federation.
"The whole of the community is greater than the sum of its parts" and we are a whole community. Your generous gifts keep us whole.
Our thoughts and prayers go to those affected by the hurricanes
An emergency relief mailbox has been opened. 100% of the monies contributed to that emergency relief mailbox will go to those affected by this catastrophic hurricane.
