Annual Fund

NCJW/CLE’s voice resonates throughout the community. The issues of social justice for women, children and families evolve constantly. NCJW/CLE volunteers address those needs through its community service projects and social justice initiatives.

Please align your philanthropic commitment with your beliefs and principles by supporting NCJW/CLE’s work in changing the lives of women, children and families.

The Annual Fund provides needed support for the successful day-to-day operations of the organization. The organization’s Annual Fund Campaign takes place every year beginning in the fall and provides the main source of support to our operating budget. Consider joining Hannah’s Society – named after the founder of NCJW, Hannah G. Solomon – comprised of donors who contribute $1,800 or more annually.


Named endowment funds provide a lasting legacy and long term support to NCJW/CLE. A named fund can be unrestricted. This is one of the most flexible gift as it permits the organization to use the resources where they are most needed at the time. A named fund can also be a restricted gift, to support a designated program, service or activity. A minimum of $5,000 by money or stock.
