JFFS Updates: July 10, 2015



Celebrating 50 Years with Top Charity Rating

July 6, 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of Jewish Federation & Family Services' founding! And what better way to celebrate all we have accomplished together with our friends and partners across the community than with a FIFTH consecutive perfect 4-star rating from Charity Navigator! Only 5% of American nonprofits have achieved this milestone. As Charity Navigator writes: "Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices [...] and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way." Happy 50th JFFS! And here's to many more years of caring for people in need, building a vibrant community and sustaining and enhancing Jewish life together!



If you're entering an Orange County university or community college this fall, Hillel of OC wants to connect. With chapters at Chapman, UCI and CSUF, Hillel is a gateway to Jewish life and learning, offering a wide variety of social, educational, cultural and community services, and leadership programs, to Jewish students of all backgrounds. Community college students are welcome to participate in campus programming as well. Grad and professional students also welcome. Please send contact information to Lisa@jffs.org.

Don't Miss Out! In 2014-2015, 20,000 copies of the Jewish OC: Community Directory were distributed, free of charge, to homes, congregations, communal centers, schools, nonprofits, businesses, and events year-round, across Orange County. Many more community members downloaded their free copies of the Directory via our website and took advantage of the free online search tool.

Once again, this comprehensive, community-wide resource will be distributed free of charge ahead of the High Holidays. Will your organization be included? Click here to reserve your listing or ad space!
