Lion Plus. Taking pride in building community.

Join us to show what Lions of Judah can accomplish when we come together

As a Lion of Judah, you have made a commitment to support and strengthen our community, and to fulfill your vision of making the world a better place.

Today, as our Jewish community navigates a public health and economic crisis our collective philanthropy is more crucial than ever.

That’s why Federation’s Women’s Philanthropy is introducing the Lion+ Campaign—an opportunity for Lions in Greater Washington to elevate their philanthropy to help our community weather the crisis, and ensure a strong and vibrant Jewish future for years to come.

Close your 2020 Annual Campaign gift and consider making an even greater impact on our community today by:

Increasing your gift to Federation’s Annual Campaign to ensure that our vital institutions can plan and continue to deliver critical services next year.

Making an additional donation to the Jewish Community COVID-19 Response Fund to meet the urgent needs of the most vulnerable in our community.

Endowing your Lion of Judah gift to support our community for generations to come. Learn more about becoming a Forever Lion by establishing a Lion of Judah Endowment.

Greater Washington’s Lions of Judah are stepping up and showcasing the power of their collective philanthropy to ensure a stronger and more vibrant Jewish community. Lear more about what inspires them during this critical moment.
