support Jewish campus life

invest in Cleveland hillel!

Cleveland Hillel has grown in its outreach, scope, and programming for Jewish young adults age 18-29. The impact on Jewish continuity and strengthening Jewish Cleveland can only be sustained with continued and increased donations to fund programs and initiatives. 

General Unrestricted Support

General unrestricted support enables Cleveland Hillel Foundation to “keep our doors open” and utilize a variety of approaches to engage young adults to strengthen their commitment to their Jewish identity, the Jewish community, and Cleveland.

There is something for every student attending the eleven campuses we serve. We offer a wide variety of cultural, educational, leadership, religious, and social programs, as well as educational and personal experiences related to Israel. Additionally, Cleveland Hillel’s Albert & Norma Geller Hillel Student Center (where students can drop in and connect) and our outreach efforts help establish meaningful relationships with peers and role models.

Restricted Support

Donations and Grants can be designated for a specific area of our work, such as for a specific campus, project, or program. Some designated gifts include “sponsorships” or special recognition. Examples of our highest priority needs follow in this document. Restricted donations are $750+.

Our Annual Report illustrates how your donation is “put to work." We leverage and maximize donations through an efficient staff, strict budget controls, and the dedication of our volunteer board of directors and student leadership.
