Ways to Give


Support Your JCC


When you walk into the JCC,  we ask you to pause for a moment… and experience the essence of community surrounding you.  Watch children playing on their way to preschool, folks rushing to a new fitness class or to go for a swim, seniors enjoying a live jazz concert and volunteers and staff planning new events.  You’ll see community, and the wonderful impact it has on thousands of people here at the JCC.

Please help support your community – right here at home – and our important goals and priorities moving forward, including:

  • Supporting Those in Need with Scholarships
  • Expanding Special Needs Offerings
  • Growing Jewish and Cultural Programming
  • Going Green With New Energy Efficient ImprovementsDonate-Button

Your support will make a difference in the lives of many! Please make a gift today. Stop by the Welcome Center or donate securely online here. THANK YOU!

There are many ways you can support the JCCNS, including those listed below. For more information, please contact Development Associate Karen Bar-Or at or 781-476-9901.

Sponsor a Program or Event

You or your business can sponsor one of the JCC’s popular events/programs and receive positive exposure among JCC members and the community. Sponsorship opportunities include the JCC Golf Outing, Film Festival, Jewish Book Month, Triathlon by the Sea and more.

Endowment & Planned Giving

Endowment gifts may be structured in many ways. You can..

  • Create an endowment to perpetuate your annual support. This is a wonderful way to sustain your lifelong investment in your community.
  • Establish your own restricted endowment fund to benefit specific programs, including Early Childhood, Summer Camp, Jewish Programming etc.
  • Designate your contribution for JCCNS’ unrestricted endowment. In many ways, unrestricted gifts are the most powerful. They give the JCCNS the flexibility to use your gift for the greatest good and to respond to our community’s changing needs.
