Have you been donating to the Jewish Federation for 25 years or more?
Welcome to the Silver Circle Society!
The Silver Circle Society launched in October 2021, is a recognition society to honor our long-time donors to the Federation Annual Campaign for their dedication and commitment to the Jewish community in Greater New Haven, in Israel and around the world in the past, present and future. Silver Circle members have maintained an active involvement in the Jewish community over the years by committing themselves to helping and supporting in any way they can. Some have held leadership positions in the Federation, the JCC, and local synagogues while others have given their time to our local community agencies.
We have donors who are Holocaust survivors or children of survivors, individuals who witnessed Israel declare its statehood, and others who have traveled the world advocating on behalf of Israel and the global Jewish community. In addition to their involvement in bettering Jewish life, many of these longtime donors have given additional support to other organizations in our community such as the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven, Greater New Haven Community Foundation, local food pantries, and so many others.
At present, there are over 900 members each who have their own unique stories and experiences which have shaped their desire to support the Federation, but the one thing they all share is an amazing passion for the longevity and future strength of the Jewish community. Collectively, this group has contributed over $50 million to support Jewish life and the most vulnerable in our community.
Please remember the Jewish community in your estate plans.
With a planned gift, your legacy can impact future generations.
