Federation's 2016 campaign passes $2-million mark


By Jewish Federation of Jacksonville


          There was cause for some celebration in mid-March as the 2016 annual campaign of the Jewish Federation of Jacksonville surpassed the $2-million mark.  Upon the occasion, Campaign Chair, Ken Jacobs expressed appreciation to the members of the community who have supported the campaign to date. He also encouraged those who have yet to make their commitments, to consider doing so as soon as possible. Currently, 380 gifts remain outstanding with a dollar value of $577,000. 
          In late April, Federation board members will meet and approve a final campaign projection which will be used by the allocations committee during their meetings in both April and May. “The more dollars that come in, the greater ability that Federation will have to meet the increased needs in our community and overseas, so it is important that we close the outstanding gifts as soon as possible," explained Jacobs.
