Make a Donation

Supporting Jewish Family Services is the ultimate expression of “tikkun olam,” or repairing the world, because your gift will assist someone truly in need in the Greater Hartford community. When you donate to JFS you generously participate in a unique giving opportunity within our community.

Honor the People You Care About

Give in honor or in memory of someone you care about. We’ll send an acknowledgment a card to commemorate your gift.

Embrace Those in Need

The financial and emotional strain on a family can be overwhelming when faced with ongoing challenges, especially during the pandemic. Embrace-A-Child (donation at the $500 level) and Embrace-A-Family (donation at the $1,800 level) help subsidize basic human needs for a JFS client family who is less fortunate.

Give for Free When You Shop

AmazonSmile for JFS Hartford

You shop. Amazon gives. Whenever you shop at AmazonSmile. Amazon will donate .5% of your purchases to Jewish Family Service of Greater Hartford at no cost to you! Just designate Jewish Family Services of Greater Hartford or bookmark this link. You will be surprised by how quickly it adds up!

Donate Stock and Marketable Securities

Donating appreciated securities can help you have a bigger impact and offers greater tax advantages than donating cash or selling stock and donating the proceeds. A gift of appreciated securities also bypasses the capital gains tax and you may deduct the fair market value of your gift.

Leave a Legacy

One of the essential questions we ask ourselves is “What did I do to leave the world a better place than I found it?” Join the JFS Legacy Society and make an impact well into the future.

Get a Company Match

Many companies will match your gifts to JFS! Ask your employer’s Human Resources Department if they provide matching gifts.
