With Your Help, Here’s What We Accomplished In 2018

Dear friends,

We thought you might like to know how we spent the money you donated to The Jonah Maccabee Foundation in 2018.

Here’s the rundown of the grants we made:

1) California Fire Foundation: The wildfires in California devastated so many lives. California Fire Foundation’s SAVE program provides financial assistance and other support services to survivors struggling to put their lives back together.

2) Families Belong Together: As we continue to witness America’s betrayal of its long-standing passion for being a nation of refugees, some 250 organizations representing Americans from all backgrounds have joined together to fight family separation and detention, seek accountability for the harm that’s been done, and to reunite all families who remain torn apart.

Introducing: “Gifts Given and Received”!

We hope your Thanksgiving was filled with love, gratitude, and just enough good eating. It’s time for our December 2018 Campaign and we hope you’ll give generously. If you’re ready now, you can make your gift right here.

We’ve named this campaign “Gifts Given and Received” because we’ll be remembering gifts that Jonah received for birthdays and holidays, but also the gifts he gave to others, some material, others from his head and his heart. Our hope is that these stories (posted online throughout the month of December at jonahmac.org) will inspire you to make your own gift at jonahmac.org/donate and help us help kids build whole, healthy lives.

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: Read the rest of this entry »

That Chromatic Critter on Our Campaign Banner

Did you notice the cute, colorful creature pictured on our summer campaign graphic? She’s a panther chameleon. We named her Prudence Chloe (it’s all about the alliteration, of course … Prudence Chloe, the panther chameleon).

Okay, that’s wrong. When I named her a week ago, I introduced her online but it was only a short while before Carol Steiger Stempel commented, “Beautiful, but your Prudence is a guy.”

Oops.

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.

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.
