Annual and Personal Giving
Special Gifts Campaign

Members, please look for your Special Gifts Campaign donor pledge card in the mail in the fall. Or, give to our Special Gifts Campaign now.
Spring House Tour
Our annual Spring House Tour is a personal giving event to benefit NCJW. A minimum donation is set for a ticket to the event and the luncheon that follows, but many participants chose to give more. NCJW members can look for their invitations in the mail in March.
NCJW Golf Invitational
Our annual golf tournament takes place every June at a
beautiful local country club. This personal giving event enables various levels of giving.
Spring is raffle season at NCJW! The more you buy, the more you support NCJW and the greater your chances at winning a valuable prize.
NCJW accepts matching gifts from any business or corporation. Does your or your spouse's employer have a matching gifts program? If so, you can make your donation to NCJW go twice as far! All that is usually required is to submit the company's matching-gift form with your donation to NCJW.
