Donate to Support the Danforth Jewish Circle

The DJC is building for the future: your generosity makes a difference.

New resources will offer more adult and youth programming, spiritual learning, community activities, life cycle support, and accessibility to the DJC for those in financial need. A monthly donation provides the greatest certainty for DJC planning and its programming decisions.

Your donations can be directed to support:

  • Current Danforth Jewish Circle programs (services, educational programs, social justice work, pastoral care, adult learning, social events, accessibility initiatives, and more)
  • The Claudia Bali Education Fund, where the funds will support the DJC Jewish Studies Program and B’nei Mitzvah Program
  • The recognition of individuals and lifecycle events (memorial and Kavod/honour donation); support the creation of a Yahrzeit leaf for our tapestry ($54); sponsor a Kiddush ($108); dedicate a Siddur prayerbook ($36)

Every $1,000 donated to current programs covers the cost of one of the following:

  • An additional evening of programming
  • A rabbi-led Shabbat service,
  • A membership for a family in need
  • A full year of DJC school tuition for a student

Leave a Gift in Your Will

The strongest ongoing legacy you can provide for the DJC is to make a bequeath in your Will. This does not need to be difficult. If you already have a Will you can attach a simple codicil or if you are revising or preparing your Will outline your wishes. There are 4 basic ways to give. Consult your lawyer, financial planner, or email us and we will help you find the answers you need.

You will receive a charitable tax receipt for your contribution. Official income tax receipts will be emailed in early February for donations made in the previous tax year. The Danforth Jewish Circle is a registered charitable organization (BN/Registration number: 870202660RR0001).
