Annual Giving to HUC-JIR

One of the College-Institute’s most important philanthropic priorities, the Annual Fund supports everything we do at HUC-JIR. From student aid to library acquisitions and everything in between, the Annual Fund provides a critical well of support from which we can supplement areas of greatest need, capitalize on exciting new opportunities, and respond to unexpected emergencies each year.

Every gift is used immediately to support the exceptional HUC-JIR educational experiences you expect for our students: accomplished faculty, classrooms, technology for online learning, the most up-to-date library and digital resources, mentoring, spiritual growth, internships and their supervision, counseling, professional skill-building, and accommodations for learning needs.

With your yearly commitment to the Annual Fund, you truly help forge a new generation of inspired Jewish leaders who will guide our communities and sustain a vibrant and relevant Jewish future. And your giving signals to fellow alumni and the wider world that HUC-JIR is an essential institution, worthy of investment.
