Support Your JCC

The Simon Family JCC provides hundreds of programs on behalf of our members and the entire Hampton Roads Community. There are four major fundraising vehicles which the Simon Family JCC offers to donors and sponsors each year.

Annual Fund
The programs offered by the Simon Family JCC represent four core priority areas: Family, Culture, Wellness and Community. A gift of the annual fund will provide unrestricted support to fund all the programs and activities within these areas. Contributions to the annual fund also enable the JCC to provide financial support in the form of scholarships.

Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament
Each year the Simon Family Jewish Community center hosts the Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament at a prestigious golf club in Hampton Roads. More than 100 community members participate in a day of golf, fun, and education. After a round of golf, participants enjoy a reception at which the leaders of the JCC, past and present, are recognized for the commitment of time and leadership to the entire community.

The Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament is one of the JCC’s primary fundraising initiatives. Sponsorships provided by individuals and businesses provide funding for children’s programming at the Simon Family JCC including Camp JCC, Kids Connections Before and After School program, and teen leadership programs. The Presidents’ Cup Golf Tournament is organized by a committee of dedicated leaders.
