We hope you will join us for our 4th Community of Giving - A Virtual Gathering on Giving Tuesday. This event supports the JF&CS Annual Campaign.

Community of Giving is a fundraising event hosted virtually by Jewish Family & Career Services on Giving Tuesday. Guests can join from their own homes or attend in-person hosted watch parties. Our featured guest is Melissa Ponzio, actress (Chicago Fire, Teen Wolf, The Walking Dead) and JF&CS volunteer. Melissa will discuss her JF&CS connection and the importance of mental health support with local award-winning broadcast journalist, Rick Folbaum.

Through personal client experiences and insights from leadership, JF&CS will share the impact of our services on our clients and the community. Community of Giving draws hundreds of attendees and is only made possible with the support of our community members and sponsors. All funds raised from this event support the JF&CS Annual Campaign.
