JDC Makes the 'J List' in Middlesex County

Earlier this month the 'J Team', the Jewish Youth Philanthropy Team at the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County awarded a total of $7,000 in grants to four organizations, including JDC. 

For participants, students from 8th grade to 10th grade, the ceremony was the culmination of a year of learning about philanthropy and tzedakah.   They heard presentations from several non-profit organizations, learning about their mission and work and then sat down to the task of deciding which four organizations should receive a grant and how the money should be divided.

Of the four recipient organizations, JDC received the largest allocation. 

We thank the J Team for their generous gift and the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County for their ongoing support and partnership.
