A Campaign for Community Security

 

 

 

 

Times are changing. With your help, we are responding. We are committed to keeping our families, institutions and community gatherings safe.

 

The security needs of our community require increased resources to meet them. The Federation has launched ROCStrong, a three-year, $10 million campaign to:

  • Upgrade the security infrastructure of our 25 local Jewish institutions - $3 million
  • Establish an endowment to support security needs in perpetuity - $7 million

 

Please consider a gift to support ROCStrong. Community security affects every one of us, and we all have a part to play. Help us keep our Rochester community, and everyone in it, safe.

DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT

Thanks to the generous support of the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation all donations up to $25,000 will be matched, doubling the impact of your gift.
