Life & Legacy Donation Page

The J is where people of all backgrounds gather, connect, and find friendship. We are committed to strengthening the body, mind and soul of the over 400,000 community members entering our doors annually.

For over 100 years, the Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus has been at the heart of the Columbus Jewish community. We are a place of belonging, where you can build lifelong relationships and create enduring memories.

Jewish values of Kehillah (community), Kavod (respect), Chesed (caring), Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), and Gemilut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness) are embedded throughout JCC activities and experiences. Children laughing as they walk through the halls, seniors sharing stories over hot Kosher lunches, feet thumping on the treadmill, and energetic camp song sessions are just some of the sounds that tell our story.

Our vital programs connect the community through every stage of life – from infancy to old age. The J is a Jewish agency that makes a difference from generation to generation.

Our Legacy donors are people like you who want to ensure that the J continues flourishing as a valuable and vibrant part of our Columbus Jewish community. You can guarantee the next generation will have the same impactful JCC experiences that have shaped you and your family.
