Fox Valley Jewish Neighbors Annual Fundraiser

Fox Valley Jewish Neighbors (FVJN) is holding its annual fundraiser. This Jewish community group is located in Geneva.

Please donate today to help FVJN continue its wide-variety of community offerings!  As in past years, we come to you this time each year with our annual end-of-the-year fundraiser request.  This is our only concerted donation drive of the year and we rely on your support to help keep FVJN and all of its activities running smoothly.

FVJN does not have dues, and generally does not charge for our activities.  Instead, FVJN relies on donations that allow us to offer our many activities to our broad constituency.  

We have a matching gift program in place this year, increasing the value of your donation to FVJN this month.  Please help your dollars go further, and enable FVJN to provide even more wonderful services to our community in the coming year by sending in your tax-deductible* donations right away online or through the mail.

FVJN has completed another year as the vibrant and dynamic Jewish organization that welcomes all who are interested in being part of our ongoing building of our local Jewish community.  Each year we have more people participating in an ever-increasing number of programs.  This year, through FVJN, people gathered for: 

• Social service activities, including working at Northern Illinois Food Bank and participating in the International Day of Peace

• Interfaith- and family-friendly services and celebrations, including baby-naming ceremonies, Shabbats, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot

• Fox Valley Jewish School: FVJN’s religious school 

• Book Club meetings

• Adult education programs, including film nights 

• Bar and bat mitzvah celebrations

• Social activities

Please help FVJN meet its costs for our fabulous staff; for maintaining our space on Third Street and renting other space when needed; and for supplies in providing our wide-range of services.

FVJN makes a significant difference in the Jewish presence in our area.  Local papers frequently cover FVJN events, and people interested in Jewish activities in our area are consistently referred to FVJN.  Each year we find more fellow Jews located in the far western suburbs!  

Help us to continue to gather together, and to welcome all who want to be part of our Jewish community.  We welcome you without regard to synagogue affiliation, your brand of Judaism, your religious background, your marital status or sexual orientation, or your age.

Your donations are essential for FVJN to continue its work!  Thank you for sending your tax-deductible* donation today to FVJN, P.O. Box 346, Geneva, IL  60134, or submitting it on-line at fvjn.org (by clicking on the “Donate” icon on the upper-right under the main banner).  

Best wishes to you each for a wonderful holiday season.

Warmly, on behalf of all of the FVJN Board,

Tammie Weinberger, President
