The Jewish Federation of Louisville thanks all members of the community who answered the call and gave generously on Super Sunday, January 31.
Throughout the day, the Board Room bustled with energy and activity as dedicated volunteers and staff called community members to thank them for their participation. That day, volunteers secured 178 gifts were made to the 2016 Federation Campaign, totaling $109,050.
This represents an increase of 48 percent over gifts from the same donors last year, and all the increases will be generously matched by the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence. Through the Double Your Impact Challenge, JHFE is matching all new and increased gifts to the 2016 Campaign up to $200,000.
There is still time to make your pledge and help keep our Louisville Jewish community strong and vibrant. To donate online today, go to www.jewishlouisville.org/donate or call the Federation office, 502-238-2739.
