The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announced at the campaign closing celebration on May 12 that the 2010 Campaign for Jewish Needs raised $27,792,531.  Billed as “celebrating the work we do,” the event, which was held at The Mandel Jewish Community Center, recognized the many volunteers who worked on the campaign, and the generosity of the community.

More than 12,500 donors made gifts – including over 1,721 new gifts.  Michael Siegal, 2010 Campaign for Jewish Needs Chair, remarked, “It’s really about the good this community can do for the people who can’t do it for themselves.  We improve the lives of everybody we touch, Jew and non-Jew alike.”  Siegal also chaired the previous year’s campaign.  The total raised in the two years under his leadership is $56,564,931.

Gary L. Gross, a partner in Gross Builders, will be the chair of the 2011 Campaign for Jewish Needs.  He has held several leadership positions in the community and was a vice chair of the Federation’s 2010 campaign.

The Federation partners with 15 local beneficiary agencies and four international humanitarian organizations to provide educational and social services to thousands in need in Cleveland, Israel and 60 countries around the world.  For more information about the Federation and its projects, visit http://www.jewishcleveland.org.
