Campaign 2022 top items to know


1. The Campaign:
We are asking donors to increase their pledge to the 2022 Annual Campaign. The suggested increase is 15%. This is needed to help secure our recovery and to strengthen our community for the future. Federation has identified two main areas of priority: Supporting the most vulnerable; ensuring access to Jewish life and education. At the same time, Federation is focused on fighting the rise in antisemtism. Federation will continue to work with our advocacy partner, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, as we mobilize to counter antisemitism, particularly to ensure public school students and our university campuses have safe environments for our children.

Please check pledge cards carefully and thank those who made an extra donation this spring to the Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience. Tell them: 

“YOU CARRIED OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH THIS CRISIS. WILL YOU JOIN US IN LEADING OUR COMMUNITY TO A SECURE AND THRIVING FUTURE?”

 

2. Here for Good:
Federation’s powerful response to the COVID crisis is an example of the critical role it plays in the Jewish community. Federation launched an Emergency Campaign that raised an incredible $2.4M to protect the community’s most essential services and most vulnerable members. It was this fast and fulsome action that helped all our organizations weather the storm. Explain to donors that when they give to Federation, they are ensuring the entire Jewish community is supported. 

 

3. Address the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19 crisis: Many people still need extra help. From food insecurity to mental health struggles, Federation is here to strengthen our Jewish social safety net. Many families remain financially fragile and at risk of disconnecting from Jewish life. Federation is working to ensure that everyone still has access to the Jewish Superhighway with the ability to enjoy meaningful Jewish journeys.
 
4. Understand the Jewish Superhighway: The vision has four primary outcomes: 
Inspired Jewish experiences for all ages 
Enriched Jewish education and learning 
Compassionate care for our most vulnerable 
A safe and secure community
 
5. Face-to-face canvassing: This remains the best way to ask for a gift and meeting outdoors is  particularly effective to accommodate social distancing. This means that you should prioritize  canvassing while the weather is still pleasant.
