Summer Campaign 2018 Has Begun!

It’s time for our Summer 2018 Campaign and we hope you’ll give generously. If you’re ready now, you can make your gift right here.

Wanna know what we’ve been up to? Here’s a short list of our most recent projects. We hope they inspire you to join us in our efforts to help kids build whole, healthy lives:

1) The Penguin Project: In Peoria, Illinois, The Penguin Project offers opportunities for any kid with a disability, ages 10-21, to participate in the performing arts. As Penguin Project founder Dr. Andrew Morgan teaches, “Penguins may not be able to fly, but that does not prevent their spirits from soaring.” This awesome program has received a grant from The JMF Arts Fund.

What We Accomplished In 2017

Dear friends,

Happy new year! Our winter campaign has ended and we thought you might like to know how we spent your money in 2016. Here’s the rundown of the grants we made:

1) IsraAID is an Israeli-based humanitarian aid agency that responds to emergency crises and engages in international development around the world. Our grant supported their work with Syrian refugees.

2) Treehouse Shakers provides teacher trainings and residencies for students that focus on the art of dance and storytelling.

3) The American Indian College Fund supports Native student access to higher education. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation believes that every American has a profound responsibility to assist our nation’s indigenous peoples in building whole, healthy lives for themselves and their children.

Our December 2017 Campaign Has Begun — Please Join In!

Thank You for Participating in Our Yemen Relief Project

Thank you for joining us in extending a helping hand to the Republic of Yemen, in the Arabian Peninsula, as it contends with violence and famine and disease resulting from six years of internal and external conflicts. 7 million people are at risk of famine, with more than a million children under the age of five suffering from malnutrition. The nation has been struck by a cholera epidemic and the national blood bank may close due to lack of funds.

We’re forwarding 100% of your donations to this project to the International Rescue Committee as its teams provide clean water, medicine, nutrition services and other urgent aid to as many people as possible.

This problem isn’t going away anytime soon, so we’ll keep this project open. To donate, just click on “Yemen Relief Project” at jonahmac.org/donate.

Most sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Katie, Mark and Aiden
The Jonah Maccabee Foundation, Inc.

Thank You for Participating in Our Charlottesville Project

We’re so grateful that you’ve chosen to join us in standing up against racism, white supremacists, and hatred in our country. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation is working with organizations that are fighting the efforts of those who would reserve American soil only for those who fit the description of their choosing. We’re forwarding every penny of these donations to the Southern Poverty Law Center which always stands at the forefront of these critical battles on America’s streets and in her courtrooms.

Most sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Katie, Mark and Aiden
The Jonah Maccabee Foundation, Inc.

Thank You for Participating in Our Hurricane Harvey Relief Project

Hurricane Harvey has caused so much upheaval and devastation in Texas. Your donations help us to help them. Together. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation is working with Save the Children to provide needed assistance. But this is likely only the beginning of vital relief projects. First, we help with shelter and clothing and food. Down the road, folks down there may need more help during the rebuilding years. Jonah’s family and friends will lend a helping hand then too. We hope you’ll stick with us.

Most sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Katie, Mark and Aiden

Charlottesville!

In light of Saturday’s events in Charlottesville, we’re adding a new project to our agenda. It’s vital that every American stand in opposition to racism, white supremacists, and hatred. Committed to helping create a world where kids can grow up healthy and whole, The Jonah Maccabee Foundation is working with organizations that are fighting the efforts of those who would reserve American soil only for those who fit the description of their choosing.

Please DONATE TO OUR “CHARLOTTESVILLE PROJECT” HERE by designating in the space provided on the form that you’d like your gift to join this battle for America’s soul. We’ll forward every penny to the Southern Poverty Law Center and others of our friends and heroes at the forefront of these critical battles on America’s streets and in her courtrooms.

We are so grateful to have you join us in this effort.

Most sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Katie, Mark and Aiden

Join JMF’s effort to help families in war-torn Yemen

Far away and out of mind, but the Republic of Yemen, in the Arabian Peninsula, is contending with violence and famine and disease as a result of six years of internal and external conflicts. 7 million people are at risk of famine, with more than a million children under the age of five suffering from malnutrition. The nation has been struck by a cholera epidemic and the national blood bank may close due to lack of funds.

We’re preparing to forward grants from The Jonah Maccabee Foundation to help kids who are caught in this disaster. We hope you will join us by making a generous donation that we will send to folks who are working in the trenches there.

Please DONATE FOR YEMEN RELIEF HERE. We’ll be working with the International Rescue Committee as they deploy emergency response teams to provide clean water, medicine, nutrition services and other urgent aid to as many people as possible.

We are so grateful to have you join us in this effort. All unspecified donations between now and the end of August will go directly to relief projects in Yemen.

Most sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Katie, Mark and Aiden
The Jonah Maccabee Foundation, Inc.
