Ways to Give

Be the light. Be the hope. Be the help.

However you desire to give, Jewish Family Service Houston (JFS) invites you to be our partner in creating a caring community.

Giving is an act of love, a deliberate decision to make a difference for someone you don't even know. JFS Houston recognizes that your action is personal. We are ready to receive your gift and use it for the greatest need or in accordance with your specific wishes. We can also work with you to honor or memorialize someone with your gift in a personal, meaningful way.

Donating is easy by giving online, by check or by calling with a credit card. You can also select a named fund or pay a pledge and contribute physical items.

Regardless, we will work with you to accomplish your charitable goals. See below to see what other types of donations we accept.
