Tzedakah (righteous behavior) and the practice of mitzvot (good deeds) are the essence of the JCC on the Hudson. With that in mind, the community trusts us to provide important programs and services--even in harsh economic climates. We take that responsiblity seriously, offering options that enrich, teach, entertain, preserve Jewish heritage, and help those in need. To fulfil our ongoing commitment to the people we serve, and to meet these challenges, we must rely on your support.

For your convenience, you can now make your donation online, through our secure network. Please, consider one of the many ways you can make a tax-deductible gift to the JCC on the Hudson, a true community resource. Your gift will ensure a healthy and vibrant JCC for generations to come.

Acknowledge a special occasion
Whether your donation is in honor of a friend or relative, acknowledges a special occasion or major life event - (Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, wedding anniversaries, graduations), or is made in memory of a loved who has passed away, your gift will be acknowledged appropriately. Simply include instructions for the tribute along with your gift, and we'll do the rest.
