Men’s Philanthropy


Introducing the newest division of philanthropic giving – The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton is creating three new giving societies that will formally recognize the brotherhood of philanthropic giving that has existed in our Dayton Jewish community. Our hope is that these societies will provide recognition for the amazing commitment so many men have made to our community, as well as inspire others to step up and join our campaign at a new levels.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton’s newly formed Men’s group recognizes the brotherhood of philanthropic leadership that exists within our community. This group is made of up of men from across the Jewish community, of all ages and backgrounds, who have made a strong commitment to supporting the Jewish people and the work of tikkun olam. This brotherhood of philanthropists is leading the way and inspiring others to make a difference.

How to get involved in Men’s Philanthropy

Shofar Society: $180–$1,799

The sound of the shofar represents a call to action. When a man makes a gift of $180 or more to the Jewish Federation’s Annual Campaign, he joins a brotherhood of philanthropists who have taken action within this community. The shofar pins represent the dignity and strength of their commitment to tzedakah and tikkun olam.

Maccabees $1,800–$4,999

Symbolizing Jewish life and strength in the face of adversity, the Maccabees are a fitting emblem for this program. Hebrew for “hammer”, the Maccabees led a revolt to retain Jewish customs and reassert religious freedom in Jerusalem. The Maccabees pin symbolizes a man’s generosity and commitment to tzedakah and tikkun olam.

Shield of Judah $5,000+

The Shield of Judah pin represents the amazing commitment men have made to our community and beyond. The Shield of Judah represents protection; a Shield of Judah’s generosity ensures our Jewish community will remain strong and supported for generations to come. A man who wears his Shield pin joins a brotherhood of Shields, determined to support their community and embody the true meaning of tzedakah.
