Uplift Your Jewish Community

Stay home and stay safe while still supporting your neighbors.

The Goal:

By the end of October, help the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland to raise $1,500,000 to provide critical services for families, teens, children and our community in the year ahead.

This month only, your gift will be doubled!

100% of your first time donation or 100% of your increased amount made by October 31, 2021 will be matched.


It goes without saying that 2021 has been another challenging year, especially for school-aged children, teens, and parents. The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland’s Please Don’t Show Gala has an important purpose beyond reminding us of how much we miss in-person events! We want to uplift families and the youngest members of our community because they hold the keys to our future.


Your Dollars Give:


  • Relief to parents with scholarship funding for their children to attend Jewish preschool

  • Support to families in need of financial assistance​

  • Hope to teens with grant funding to attend an immersive Israel or gap year program
