JFS of Washtenaw County is thrilled to announce that we have been chosen as one of only 50 local non-profit agencies to participate in the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation’s (AAACF) Give Local event.
The goal of Give Local is to generate $1 million for 50 local non-profits in only 24 hours, on Tuesday, May 6th. Created to celebrate both the AAACF’s 50th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the first community foundation, Give Local emphasizes the importance of supporting programs in one’s local community.
How does Give Local work, and more importantly, how can you help JFS maximize its participation in this event?
The AAACF will be matching 1:1 every dollar raised by the participating agencies on Tuesday, May 6th, up to $10,000. This means that JFS has the chance, with your support to raise at least $20,000 – in one day.
On Tuesday, May 6th, please visit www.givelocalannarborarea.org. From there, you will be able to select JFS from among the 50 participating agencies and make your online donation directly.
All gifts must go through the above website, but please note that if you’d like to make a gift to JFS via check instead on the 6th, we can then make the online donation for you. The minimum gift is only $10, and you may support as many of the 50 organizations as you’d like.
www.givelocalannarborarea.org will not be accepting donations prior to May 6th, but please visit the site now to learn more about the event and to see a list of participating non-profits. Please feel free to contact Rosemary Frenza Chudnof at (734) 769-0209 with questions.
WANT TO BE REMINDED? JFS can remind you by telephone or email.
