General Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund at the Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center provides financial support for families, single - parent families and/or individuals in need of assistance for daycare, pre-school, camp or membership. In 2010, the Suffolk Y JCC granted close to $250,000 in scholarship requests to people just like you, maybe a member of your family, a neighbor or a friend. This financial assistance has enabled individuals and families to utilize the programs and services they require at the Suffolk Y JCC.

The National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame

The National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, located at the Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center, is dedicated to honoring Jewish sports figures who have distinguished themselves in the field of sports. The objective is to foster Jewish identity through athletics. In a world where stereotype and prejudice have not yet been eradicated, the Hall of Fame reminds us of heroes of the courts and playing fields who have emerged from a people not commonly associated with sports.

Capital Gifts

The Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center has many opportunities for endowing scholarships, or programs, as well as naming gifts for buildings or recreational facilities. We also welcome major gifts to fund donor-initiated projects. Gifts of $1,200 or more will be recognized on the Founder’s Wall in our Main Lobby.

Planned Giving

Planned giving can benefit your family and support, enhance and enrich programs at the Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center. Information on endowments, bequests, charitable reminder trusts, etc., are available in the Development Office.

Gifts of Stock

Charitable contributions to the Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center are tax-deductible. However, there is an additional benefit to giving appreciated stock. If you hold marketable securities that would result in a long-term capital gain if sold, their outright gift to SYJCC could mean significant tax savings since you are not required to pay capital gains tax on securities you donate, but can still deduct the full value of the gift.

Matching Gifts

A number of organizations participate in charitable matching gift programs. If your company provides this opportunity to double or even triple your gift, include a matching gift form from your personnel office with your gift to The Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center.
