We've all heard the saying "every dollar counts."

At the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond your contribution has the largest Jewish impact.

Thanks to your help, the 2017 Annual Campaign raised over $3 Million! Your dollars directly benefit those in need here at home, in Israel and around the world. At the heart of the Annual Campaign are volunteers and donors committed to building a stronger, brighter Jewish community together and improving Jewish lives, wherever they may be.

The Men’s, Women’s and Young Adult Division of the Annual Campaign worked diligently to raise funds while engaging in JCFR events.

Every donor who joins us helps address the needs of the Jewish community and build a vibrant Jewish future here in Richmond, in Israel and around the world. Our goals for the year ahead will continue to be ambitious, but we cannot expect anything less than continuous progress.
