The Annual Campaign is the solicitation of funds at a minimum of $1,800 to support the annual operating budget that includes caring for the Collections, producing and presenting exhibitions, adult and student educational and cultural programs. The budget also includes research, outreach, publications and the maintenance of our two historic buildings.
The focus of the Annual Campaign is the Founders Family, which is a gift of $25,000 that can be paid over a period of years. Members of our Founders Family receive most special recognition:
- STONE on the Major Gifts Wall in Lobby
- Rededication plaque on stained glass window OR dedication of a Chandelier in the Exhibit Halls
- Permanent Listing in category in TILES
- Invitations to special events & all exhibit openings
- Satisfaction of knowing that you are helping as caretakers of the past and insurers of Jewish continuity in Florida.
