Major Gifts Division

The Jewish Federation of Broward County is proud to work with a large number of visionary individuals and families who have helped to build Broward’s strong Jewish community and who have set the pace for others to follow with their generous support of the Annual Campaign, Corporate Campaign, and Supplemental Giving. Members are celebrated for their generosity with a series of honors, privileges, and invitations.

As an individual or family who makes a meaningful gift to the Federation, your generosity is recognized at an annual event that highlights the work you make possible and celebrates the Jewish community. Through membership in Major Gifts, you’ll meet others for whom philanthropy is an important part of life.

The Federation’s Major Gifts Division provides opportunities and extends appreciation to households making annual gifts of $10,000 or more to our Annual Campaign, Corporate Campaign, and/or Restricted/Supplemental Gifts. Major Donors are invited to join like-minded philanthropic leaders at first-class events, meetings with legislators and sessions with high-level Israeli leaders, as well as customized missions to Israel and Jewish communities around the world.


King David Society

Thousands of years ago, King David was a leader of our people in Israel. If you are a leader of Jewish Broward, we encourage you to follow in his footsteps and make a lasting difference in your community through your support of Jewish life today and tomorrow by joining the King David Society (KDS).

KDS members contribute a minimum $25,000 family gift annually to our Federation and are recognized for their remarkable philanthropy. As part of this group of visionary individuals, you will enjoy unique opportunities to rub shoulders, be inspired, and see how your support makes it possible for the Federation to meet both challenges and opportunities — something King David understood very well.
