Budding Philanthropists


The Combined Jewish Appeal (CJA) offers parents and children a unique opportunity to learn about philanthropy together. Our Budding Philanthropists program provides elementary school age children with a special tzedakah box to help them understand and perform the act tzedakah. Each child who makes a donation to the Combined Jewish Appeal will be listed in our annual Honour Roll and invited to our annual CJA Tzedakah Party.


Becoming a Budding Philanthropist is easy! Bring your child to the Federation office to make their donation in person. If your child already has a full tzedakah box at home, bring it in and we’ll open your CJA account. We will explain how your child’s donation will help people in the Jewish community at home and around the world. Each of us has a role to play in building community. If we all do our share, our community will continue to have a bright future!
