Thank you to the many volunteers, donors, and professionals who helped make the first-ever virtual Super Sunday a success! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s dedicated volunteers came together virtually and raised $160,000 from more than 250 donors.
In addition to the critical funds raised on Super Sunday for the 2020 Annual Campaign, gifts received for Super Sunday represent a 13 percent increase over what these same donors contributed last year. And 82 new donors showed their support for the community with new gifts for Super Sunday this year. Volunteers also reached hundreds of other donors through hand-written thank you notes.
Thanks to the special Human Services Relief Matching Fund established by Jewish Federations of North America, all new and increased gift amounts received from Super Sunday will be matched by this national matching fund at 50 percent. That means the nearly $25,000 in new and increased gifts will be matched with more than $12,000 from the Human Services Relief Matching Fund. Thank you to all those who helped get these additional funds for the community. The Human Services Relief Matching Fund will continue through the 2020 calendar year, so if you would like to increase your Annual Campaign gift, even more dollars will be matched for the community.
Special thanks to 2020 Super Sunday co-chairs Reva Weiss and Jon Shapiro, immediate past NEXTGen Director Matt Kramer-Morning, and to all of the volunteers, donors, professionals, and participants who adapted to the circumstances to support Super Sunday and the life-changing work of the Jewish Federation, community agencies, and many partner organizations. The outpouring of generosity inspired by this one day makes a difference all year long.
