“Brunswick Bonus” Available for Gifts Made During First 18 Days of Campaign

The Jewish Federation of Cleveland will launch the 2021 Campaign for Jewish Needs on Thursday, August 27 at their first-ever drive-thru event that will be open to the public from 5:00 – 8:00 pm at The Temple-Tifereth Israel parking lot (26000 Shaker Blvd in Beachwood). Led by General Campaign Chair Bradley A. Sherman, a principal and co-founder of Sherman Boseman Legal Group, the Campaign for Jewish Needs is the Federation’s annual fundraising campaign for the Jewish community.

“For more than 115 years, the Federation has helped keep our community safe and thriving by addressing immediate needs while planning for the future,” Sherman said. “This year’s Campaign is both like and unlike any other. While we face extraordinary and uncertain times, our community has faced daunting challenges before and has come together time after time after time to help make life in our Jewish community better today and even stronger in the future.”

Sherman noted the Federation’s slogan “HERE FOR GOOD” reflects “both the immense caring that permeates the community, as well as the Jewish Cleveland’s deep roots and bright future.”

As announced on August 12, this year’s Campaign will feature a special matching gift initiative by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation. Known as the “Mandel Match,” for every new or increased gift to the Campaign, the Foundation will make a donation to Jewish Cleveland’s Coronavirus Emergency Relief Fund in the amount of the new gift or the amount last year’s gift is increased.

This year’s Campaign also will feature an incentive for donors to make their gifts early and renew or increase their gift from last year. In the first 18 days of the Campaign (August 27-September 14), all gifts of $180 or more that are renewals or increases of their Campaign gift last year will be matched with an additional $180 gift to the Campaign by Brunswick Companies.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide a match opportunity to incentivize donors to the Federation’s annual Campaign to give early and give generously,” said Todd Stein, president and CEO of Brunswick Companies. “With the ‘Brunswick Bonus’, we look forward to the 2021 Campaign hitting the ground running!”

This year’s Campaign Launch Event will bring together community members in a safe and socially distant setting. Attendees will choose a half-hour time slot to attend the event, enjoy pre-packaged snacks and beverages, and celebrate our community coming together.

Registration is required for the Campaign Launch Event. There is no cost to attend. For more information or to register, visit www.jewishcleveland.org.
