JCL has been chosen as one of the fifty-one amazing nonprofits in the Greater Hartford Region to participate in Endow Hartford 21. We are very excited for this opportunity to build an endowment fund, not only for ourselves but for our region as well. 

Because Donors Believe in the Future of Greater Hartford
Endow Hartford 21 is a new matching gift endowment program, initiated by the Zachs family and supported by other lead donors who believe in the nonprofit community across Greater Hartford. The 1:2 match seeks to inspire donors to give generously to support the long-term future of the organizations they love.


Build Strength and Stability
Organizations need endowments to secure their future. An endowment helps organizations sustain their mission during periods of revenue fluctuations and adapt over time.

Make Your Endowment Gift Go Farther with a Match
Your gift will be generously matched. For example, a gift of $1,000 will yield a $500 match. Any gift between $250 to $10,000 per participating organization will be matched 1:2 by Endow Hartford 21. You may choose to make gifts to multiple organizations.


Think Community
One donor can make gifts to as many organizations as they choose, with the understanding that a donor is also defined as a household. A gift made to any organization will qualify for a match only if your annual gift to that organization has also been made.


Step Up Now, Help Generations to Come
The match is available between June 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022 – but its impact will last forever. If you would like to make a donation to JCL's Endow Hartford 21 fund, visit Endow Hartford 21. Once you find JCL's name, you can then make a gift through PayPal or by sending a check to the Jewish Community Foundation
