For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to Jewish Learning Venture's Whole Community Inclusion Campign. I've chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and have included some information below. Every gift you give will be matched by a generous grant from the Lasko Family Foundation up to $25,000~
I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Whether you donate $5 or $100, every little bit counts. Thank you for your support.
We inspire and empower those seeking to make Jewish life, learning and community relevant and meaningful, by providing: effective, cutting-edge, professional development and leadership training; comprehensive, systemic support for increased institutional strength, and; dynamic, innovative educational and engagement programming and resources.
All donations will be generously matched by the Lasko Family Foundation!
February is Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). During this important month of learning, advocacy, and work for greater inclusion, YOU can make a difference for children with disabilities by supporting Whole Community Inclusion today.
During JDAIM, your donation will be matched by the Lasko Family Foundation, doubling each dollar received.
Based on national statistics, we estimate* that there are well over 7,000 children with disabilities in the Philadelphia Jewish community. While many important strides have been made to meet this tremendous need, we know that there are still thousands of families in the greater Philadelphia community who have not found support for their children's needs in Jewish communal spaces.
Jewish Learning Venture's Whole Community Inclusion (WCI) works tirelessly to advocate for and serve children with disabilities in the Jewish community. Your gift will be generously matched dollar for dollar by the Lasko Family Foundation. Contributions will go toward programs for families, professional development for educators and clergy, and one-on-one consultations for professionals and parents.
*This estimate is based on national statistics that show 20% of the population are individuals with disabilities.
