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 a three-year, $10 million supplemental Community Security Campaign - $3 million to fund immediate infrastructure needs and $7 million to establish an endowment to support security needs in perpetuity. We are seeking donations beyond the Annual Campaign to support this community security effort.


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.


The form below can be used to make a gift to the Federation's Community Security Campaign and/or the Annual Campaign. If you have any questions about this form or your gift, please contact us.
