Thank you for helping to raise money for JF&CS Family Table by hosting an event!
Thank you for choosing Family Table as a beneficiary of your upcoming fundraiser. We are so appreciative of your efforts in support of our mission to end hunger in the Greater Boston Jewish community while serving people who need our assistance regardless of religious affiliation.
We are here to help you get started and to provide support as you plan and execute your event. Below are some helpful tools and guidelines to keep in mind.

Tools and Guidelines
Step 1: Essential Details
Please fill out our Host an Event form. We can provide you with helpful tools to market your event to guests, including our logo.
Note: Please submit your form as far in advance of your event as possible so we can provide you the best level of support!
As a nonprofit with a strict budget, we are unable to support your event financially in the form of expenses, permits, or other insurance coverage you may need. Please research forms of coverage as part of your event plan and/or confirm with your event host that they have appropriate insurance.
For check donations, please have checks made payable to JF&CS.
Step 2: Marketing Your Event
Feel free to design invites and digital assets to promote your fundraiser. Please include the phrase, “This event will benefit JF&CS Family Table” on all materials to avoid any confusion with your event sponsors and partners. Please do not imply or state that JF&CS or Family Table is the host, sponsor, or endorser of the fundraiser.
If you are planning to promote your fundraiser via social media, please be sure to indicate this on the Host an Event form.
Step 3: Post-event Processing
After the event has wrapped and you have raised funds for Family Table, please forward the proceeds to JF&CS within 14 days. You can contact your tax advisor to determine what percentage of your donation is tax deductible.
Proceeds can be submitted by check made payable to JF&CS.
Include your name/event in the memo field. Please send your check to:
Attn: Fundraise for Family Table
1430 Main Street
Waltham, MA 02451
Step 4: Final Details
Please be assured that JF&CS does not share or sell its list of supporters.
We are unable to provide volunteers to run third party fundraising events. However, we may be able to send a representative(s) of JF&CS to your event. If this level of support is requested, please let us know at least one month in advance of your event.
Thank you so much for your support of Family Table!
