Tikvah: Connecting Mind & Body

The campaign has ended but we are always accepting donations!

The Tikvah: Connecting Mind and Body Campaign ended on May 7th.  We have achieved 92% of our $36,000 goal.

          • The $33,133 raised thus far will enable Tikvah to provide new and exciting programming to our members.
          • We want to thank our 21 Campaign Ambassadors who helped us reach our goal.
          • 84 separate donations were made.
          • A special thank you to our many sponsors who each generously contributed $1000 or more.

Thank you to everyone who made a donation and who helped us fundraise throughout the campaign.

This milestone was reached with the help of everyone in our Tikvah community coming together. Thank you!

Stay tuned, we have so many new and innovative events in the coming months!
