Ellie Svenson
Community Leader and Philanthropist

Each spring, Jewish Family & Children’s Service hosts the annual Benefit, our largest fundraising event of the year. Funds raised ensure that resources are available to support the innovative and comprehensive programs that JF&CS provides the community. Each day brings new challenges, from young parents in crisis and families facing financial emergencies to isolated elders and people with disabilities in need of help. JF&CS assists individuals and families in need regardless of their background or ability to pay.

Join us as we pay tribute to this year’s honoree Ellie Svenson, a longtime supporter of JF&CS and a leader through her many years serving on the Board. Ellie’s passion and drive to help others have inspired her family and friends to become involved with JF&CS as well.
