A tax-deductible gift of $10,000 or more can establish a personal endowment fund at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades that can be named in memory of or in honor of a loved one. The fund can then be earmarked for a favorite service or activity of your choice. The income generated from the fund allows the JCC to provide vital and important services.

If you are interested in setting up an endowment or want to learn more about giving opportunities at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades, call Jordan Shenker, Chief Executive Officer at 201.408.1400.
