Highly giving. Deeply rewarding.

Those who are part of our family of Major Gifts donors know just how far we go to recognize their generosity— hosting events with accomplished speakers and providing exclusive opportunities for deeper participation.

Major Gifts donors are invited to attend VIP briefings, embark on private missions to see their dollars at work, learn about prestigious naming opportunities, enjoy intimate topical discussions with peers and our CEO over lunch, and so much more. It all starts with a minimum annual household contribution of $10,000.

Following is the range of Major Gifts recognition levels and recognition events:

Major Gifts Recognition Levels

The Ketubah Society – Cumulative $1 Million Lifetime Contributions to JFSPBC

The Ketubah Society honors donor families who have given $1 million or more over their lifetime to the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County's Annual Campaign since its inception in 1979. Thus far we have welcomed 43 families, recognizing each new member at an elegant gathering of top-level donors each year. While the traditional ketubah is part of the Jewish marriage agreement, our Federation ketubah reflects the lifelong bond and commitment an individual or family has made to the Jewish people through our Federation.
