Jewish Community of Louisville Inc., a local nonprofit that provides educational, recreational, social and cultural services and works to preserve and enrich Jewish life and values, has launched a $2.75 million goal for its 2012 fund-raising campaign.
The goal represents an 18 percent increase over last year’s, according to a news release.
The campaign’s official kick off will be Dec. 1 when the Jewish Community of Louisville will host Mitch Albom, author of “Tuesdays with Morrie.”
He will speak at The Henry Clay in downtown Louisville.
Jewish Community of Louisville was formed in 2009 with the merger of the Jewish Community Federation and the Jewish Community Center.
Funds raised during the coming campaign will help Jewish Family & Career Services provide adoption assistance, career management, counseling and college advisement.
The money also will fund the nonprofit’s own programs, including lectures, festivals and celebrations and social activities.
