Contribute to a Fund
Whether your donation is in honor of a friend or relative, acknowledges a special occasion or major life event -Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, wedding anniversaries, graduations- or is made in memory of a loved who has passed away, your gift will be acknowledged appropriately. Simply include instructions for the tribute along with your gift, and we’ll do the rest.
Select the fund you wish to donate to and send us your check along with a note expressing your wishes (if you are giving the money in honor of someone or something). We will send an acknowledgment of your contribution.

Shames JCC on the Hudson Capital Campaign. While we are quite excited by the opening of the new facility and the success of Phase One of our Capital Campaign, we still have a lot more to do in order to complete our plans for the future:
- Phase One: In addition to a number of exciting naming opportunities, Phase One still includes finishing our Youth Lounge, art and design for the building, additional improvements to the facility to better meet the needs of our members, and connecting the new facility with our legacy building.
- Phase Two: The second phase of the build-out of the new facility includes the construction of the Grodetsky Auditorium, a state-of-the art theater and multi-purpose space to host dynamic cultural and performances experiences, the music center and instrumental suites, a cafe and art gallery complex, and administrative offices and the Board room.
- Phase Three: After over a quarter century of use, the legacy building will be upgraded to better serve the educational needs of the Shames JCC community. Significant improvements to classrooms, the addition of new learning space for children, youth and adults, and a brand new sensory gym will turn our traditional home into a vibrant epicenter enter for engagement and learning. In this final phase, we will also set aside resources for scholarships and the long-term resource needs to keep our facility in top shape for generations to come.
