Campaign Events and Annual Meeting
The Jewish Federation’s Annual Campaign runs from late August through December each year. The Campaign kicks off on the last Sunday of August (in 2015, this is August 30) with an always entertainment-filled event. There is no charge to attend, however, we encourage all attendees to make their pledge that evening.
The Federation also holds campaign events. The two largest events are the Major Gifts Event and Super Sunday. Major Gifts level is currently $3,000, however, this amount is moving to $3,600 over the next two years. Super Sunday is a telethon-style event where community members are called and asked to make their annual pledge.
The Annual Campaign concludes with the Annual Meeting, which is held in January each year. Federation volunteers give presentations about the campaign as well as any other notable event(s) that have occurred throughout the year. New board members and officers are also elected at the Annual Meeting.
A highlight of the Annual Meeting is the recognition of our community’s Volunteers-of-the-Year. The purpose of the award is for the community to recognize an individual (selected by each synagogue and organization) who has made a significant contribution during the year.
