While some knew him as Jonah and others as Mac, we all loved and respected him. And we miss him dearly.

Summer Campaign 2018 Has Moved Into Its 2nd Week!

We’re really excited to be a week into this summer’s campaign. You’ve all been so generous through the years that each time we start a new campaign, it feels like we’ve invited our friends over for a tall glass of iced tea! Your gifts touch us so deeply because, again and again, you provide us with tools to increase goodness in our world and to do so in Jonah’s name. We can never thank you enough for that.

We hope you’ll join our Summer 2018 Campaign and share in the pride we all feel in our most recent work on behalf of The Penguin Project, the United Negro College Fund, the Camp OSRUI Kaye Center Fund, as well as efforts to reduce gun violence in America.

To help us with our next projects, you can make your gift right here.

If you’d like to read Billy’s latest writing about Jonah, just click here for his reflections on this year’s Jonah Maccabee Concert.

If you’d like to help us do more to help young people build whole, healthy lives, please donate to our Summer 2018 Campaign here.

One more thing: Our “So Is Life” album — magnificently recorded by Dan Nichols, Josh Nelson, Rosalie Boxt and Ellen Dreskin (now calling themselves … ta da … So Is Life) — is now available as a download (or on CD, if anyone still has a CD player). The proceeds all come to The Jonah Maccabee Foundation, so order lots & lots of copies right here. Thanks!

We continue to miss Jonah and to feel grateful: a) that we had him in our lives; and, b) that he’s inspired us to do good stuff in his name. We’re incredibly honored that you’ve joined us in our work and thank you in advance for donating to our Summer Campaign.

Very sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Katie, Mark and Aiden
The Jonah Maccabee Foundation
