    Support Your JCC: Ways to Give

    Invest in the present and future of the OFJCC! Your support truly makes a difference. Join us in our quest to be the innovative and engaging center of Jewish Life in Silicon Valley, accessible to all, where connections and memories are made. Here are some of the many ways you can support us:


    You can give to the OFJCC directly on Venmo, by using the handle @OFJCC

    Annual Gift
    Gifts of cash are an easy way to support the OFJCC and may be 100% tax deductible. You can pay online for convenience or set up an automatic monthly donation.

    Gifts of Appreciated Stock 
    By donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares that you have owned for more than a year, you may be able to avoid capital gains taxes and receive a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of your gift.

    To learn more about the benefits of donating appreciated stock please click here.

    To make a gift of appreciated stock to the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center please complete the Stock Transfer Form

    If you have questions about donating appreciated stock please contact Chief Development Officer Seth Leslie at (650) 223-8729 or [email protected].

    Gifts of Bitcoin
    Before you sell bitcoin and donate the after-tax proceeds, consider donating your bitcoin directly to the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center. Your tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the donated bitcoin (as determined by a qualified appraisal). 

    Your gift to the OFJCC will be larger because instead of paying capital gains taxes, the 501(c)(3) charity will receive the full value of your contribution.

    To make a gift of Bitcoin to the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, please contact Chief Development Officer Seth Leslie at (650) 223-8729 or [email protected].

    Gifts through Wire Transfer
    You may make a gift by transferring funds from your bank account to the OFJCC bank account. Please click here for wire transfer instructions. If you plan to make a gift this way, please inform Rachel Guedelhoefer at [email protected]

    Matching Gifts
    Double your impact! 

    Many companies will match employee contributions to non-profit organizations. Matching gifts are a convenient way to double your charitable contributions to the Oshman Family JCC. Ask your company's HR department if they have a matching gift program.

    Multi-year Pledge
    Support our Fulfilling the Vision Campaign and help us reach our $54 million goal to ensure the successful future of our campus and programs!

    Planned Gifts
    Legacy Society members make provisions for the OFJCC through their wills or estate plans, retirement accounts or through other planned giving methods. Click here for more information.

    Tribute Gifts
    Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to celebrate milestones such as birthdays, b’nai mitzvot, anniversaries, and graduations, send condolences or get well messages to friends or family, or honor the passing of a loved one. If appropriate, we will send a card with your message to the honoree, in recognition of the tribute gift.

    Vehicle Donations and In-Kind Gifts
    Avoid the hassle of selling your vehicle and get a tax deduction too! Certain other types of in-kind donations are also accepted. To inquire further, please email Luiza Arutjunian at [email protected]. To donate your vehicle, contact www.careasy.org.



    An easy way to show your support is by shopping with AmazonSmile and designating the OFJCC as your charitable organization of choice. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to us! Simply go to smile.amazon.com, choose the OFJCC and start shopping!


    Basementeer Program
    We are officially Sports Basementeers! Sports Basement donates 10% of annual profits back to nonprofit organizations and schools. 

    The more people that choose the OFJCC as their nonprofit of choice, the more Sports Basement will give back to us.

    eScrip is a hassle-free way for you to raise funds for the Leslie Family Preschool through everyday purchases made with eScrip merchants.

    Just go to www.eScrip.com, register your credit, debit and grocery club cards, and choose the OFJCC Preschool Parent Council. A percentage of all purchases made at eScrip merchants will be given back to our Preschool.




    The OFJCC is a 501(c)3 organization. Our EIN is 77-0185734. If you need a copy of our 501(c)3 certification please contact Rachel Guedelhoefer at [email protected] or (650) 223-8670.
