Not An Ask … Just A Thank You

These past five months have been hard on everyone. With so many out of work, or worried about being out of work, or just worried, we weren’t sure we should ask for donations.

In March, April and May, as the coronavirus began its march across our country and the world, we thought we’d bring you some needed love and distraction through an Online Concert Series that featured performances by Dan NicholsChava MirelThe LevinsElana ArianKenny GreenDaniel CainerEllen AllardNoah AronsonEliana Light, and Nefesh Mountain.

While enjoying the music, you still managed to give and give and give and, together, you and we provided support to health clinics across the country that were taking care of the underserved in our communities: folks who can’t afford health insurance, and undocumented immigrants whose fear of arrest keeps them away from hospitals. Because of your generosity, we were able to award grants to Centro SOL community health clinic (in Baltimore, MD), La Clínica (in San Francisco, CA), People’s Community Clinic (in Austin, TX), Phoenix Allies for Community Health (in Phoenix, AZ), and NYC Health + Hospitals (in New York, NY).

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.
