Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg's
Comprehensive Campaign

Now is our opportunity to come together as a community to raise an additional $10 million (matching the Alexander Grass Foundation's gift for the initial purchase and more) to support our efforts to create a campus that will energize and excite Harrisburg, both Jewish and non- Jewish, alike.


You can make a difference by helping to turn the Grass Campus into our community’s forever home. Comprehensive Campaign Funds donated by you and your fellow community members will support our community through:

  • Capital Costs – 50% - To construct and renovate the Grass Campus, including the creation of a kosher commercial kitchen, swimming pool, gymnasium/auditorium, and other needs
  • Programming and Operations – 30% - To support our ongoing cultural, educational, fitness, and to create new programming for all ages as we build the Grass Campus into a sustainable cultural hub
  • Security and Infrastructure – 15% - To enhance and modernize security measures on our campus as we protect our community today and into the future
  • Grass Campus Endowment – 5% - To ensure the ongoing sustainability of our campus and honor the legacy of those who give through this campaign for generations to come
This is our opportunity to support Jewish Harrisburg for the generations to come!  We appreciate your support as a dedicated member of our community and encourage you to give above and beyond your routine Annual Campaign gift. The amount of support our community generates for the Grass Campus will directly impact the quantity, quality, and security of Jewish programming and opportunities in our community now and into the future.
