Five more days— there's still time to help!

Dear Federation Friends,

Thank you so much to those of you who have made donations in the past week! We are getting closer to our goal! Maybe you've been waiting for the right time to make a gift to CUJF. Well, this is it!

CUJF's fiscal year ends June 30! We are finalizing our allocation budget for events, activities, and grants for the coming year. 

Where do your dollars go?

With your support, CUJF assists with rent and power bills for people in need in our community. We provide scholarships so students can attend Jewish summer camps where they meet new friends and gain a stronger Jewish identity. 

CUJF hosts or co-hosts activities like CHAI Seniors, PJ Library/KidDush Club, Teen Movie nights, Ladies’ Night, Young Professionals get-togethers, Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations and more. 

Your donations fund Holocaust Education workshops and educational materials. CUJF has also provided funding to social service agencies in Israel, such as Save a Child’s Heart. CUJF’s Chevra Kadisha assists with preparation for a traditional Jewish burial. CUJF also provides free books to more than 40 families through the PJ Library program. 

Please send your gift today so we can fulfill our mission in 2019-2020! You can donate on our website or send a check to CUJF at 503 E John St., Champaign, IL 61820.

If you’re a first-time donor, please consider a gift of $18, which symbolizes Chai, or Life. Your gift of $18 or more will be matched by other generous donors. That means it's worth TWICE as much!

Remember: together, we do AMAZING things!
