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.

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.

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.
