COVID-19 Community Response Fund

COVID-19 Community Response Fund

We are stronger together.

JEWISHcolorado is and always has been committed to strengthening, supporting, and sustaining the Colorado Jewish community. We anticipate that the needs of that community will grow as the pandemic—and its fallout—grow, and JEWISHcolorado is poised to respond quickly. But we can’t do it alone.

The unprecedented challenge of COVID-19 means that your support is more important than ever.

The COVID-19 Community Response Fund helps ensure that our Jewish organizations can continue their work and that the most vulnerable among us do not go without.

100% of all money raised, minus credit card fees, will go directly to the community.

Your Dollars Have an Impact

Jewish Summer Camps

JEWISHcolorado is proud to provide support in the form of grants to the Denver and Boulder JCCs for their summer programs, as well as to Ramah in the Rockies and Shwayder Camp, to preserve the tradition of Jewish camp for future generations.

Jewish Family Service of CO

COVID-19 funds help Jewish individuals and families pay rent, cover the cost of mental health services, and provide food, including kosher meals. We help JFS fulfill their obligation as an essential safety net for our community by providing a continuum of care.

Jewish Senior Facilities

In the first several weeks of the pandemic, when much was still unknown, JEWISHcolorado committed $10,000 to Kavod Senior Life and $7,500 to Shalom Park to assist with essential supplies for their residents and staff.

Israel & Overseas Partners

In June, close to $100,000 went to support hard-hit Jewish communities around the world, through our partners, Jewish Agency for Israel, Joint Distribution Committee, and World ORT. Funds were also committed to our partnership region Ramat HaNegev.

“We do not yet know the depth of need in our Jewish community, our nation’s Jewish community, or the global Jewish community. What we do know is that if we stay strong together, we can help safeguard them all.”
