Support the J

When you give to the J, you are doing more than making a financial contribution. You are helping seniors stay active and healthy. You are enabling children with disabilities to participate fully in Camp at the J. You are making it possible for kids to start their educational journeys in a school that is safe, nurturing, and rooted in Jewish values.

Your gift helps us connect people so they can live happier and fuller lives, creating a vibrant Jewish community.

Consider a Gift to the JCC

The JCC is more than just a building. It’s the heartbeat of our community. Every year, our JCC touches more than 50,000 lives. People of all ages, abilities, and beliefs in every community throughout Greater Cincinnati depend on us for reasons big and small. They look to us to connect with others, to support their healthy lifestyle, and for many helpful services. Perhaps most of all, to experience the joy of a welcoming community rooted in Jewish values.

Membership revenue and program fees do not cover all our costs. Donations, grants, and funds cover approximately 38% of our operating budget and your generous donations allow us to continue to connect, enrich, and inspire our members.

Make the JCC Accessible to Everyone

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us continue to present free and subsidized programs, and provide more than $350,000 in financial aid annually in an effort to make the JCC accessible to everyone.
