INDIGENT BURIAL

JFS maintains the Chevra Kadisha Fund to honor those who prepare a Jewish body for burial. This fund is used to pay the funeral costs of those who are unable to afford a Jewish funeral or whose families cannot, and in the last 10 years has assisted with 11 funerals. Please consider making a contribution to help renew the Chevra Kadisha Fund. Donate online below or send your check made payable to Jewish Family Services, note that this is to honor the Chevra Kadisha, and mail to 5509-C West Friendly Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27410. Thank you for helping with this important community mitzvah.

WAYS TO GIVE

CARS: A Vehicle Donation Program

 

Help support the programs, services, and the JFS emergency assistance fund with a vehicle donation. JFS has partnered with CARS, an experienced national vehicle donation program, and will receive 80% of the profits from your donation. The process is simple — CARS will pick up your donation, handle all paperwork, and will send you a tax receipt. Call JFS (336) 852-4829 and say you want to donate your car, truck, boat or airplane! You may also visit CARS online and begin the process through our JFS portal.

Did you know one aspect of the recently passed CARES Act includes new charitable giving incentives?  To bolster charitable giving in a time of economic downturn, a $300 above-the-line tax deduction for charitable giving, will be eligible to both itemizers and non-itemizers alike. The CARES Act also raises itemized charitable contribution deduction limits for individuals who itemize their deductions and claim the charitable contribution deduction.   

 


 

  • The David D. Frazier Food Pantry

    You can help fill the Food Pantry by ordering from our Amazon Wish List. Just address deliveries to Jewish Family Services at 5509-C W. Friendly Ave, Greensboro, NC 27410. Food may also be dropped of in the front foyer at the same address.
