Ways to Give
How to Support & Donate to Jewish Family & Children’s Service
Every year, we provide support and counseling to more than 47,000 people
in the Greater Phoenix area. In order to continue providing families with
the help they need in difficult times and continue functioning as a non-profit
entity, we rely on continued support from caring individuals or corporate
sponsors who want to give back to their community. Jewish Family &
Children’s Service receives most of its funding from the Regional
Behavioral Health Authority and the Department of Child Safety, but with
recent reductions in government funding, support from the community is
more important than ever. Many JFCS programs do not receive government
funding, and totally rely on the generosity of our donors.
