San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society, We Salute You!
January 2017 – The San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society recently announced that with their membership support, they were fortunate to be able to contribute $7,500 to ten organizations with a focus on genealogy. The Society encourages donations from members in addition to dues, and uses these donations to make the contributions to other organizations.
The society’s philanthropic efforts will ultimately help the donee organizations to make additional resources available and increase participation in Jewish genealogy.
Over the life of their charitable program, the SFBAJGS has donated more than $26,000 to groups that promote Jewish genealogical research. The Society makes the donations in order to “give back” to other not-for-profit organizations whose work helps their members and the greater genealogical community with their research.
The IAJGS Board wishes to recognize SFBAJGS’s leadership and membership for their charitable acts, and they wish to encourage other IAJGS members to do what they can to help similar organizations. The SFBAJGS invites organizations thinking about a giving program to contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society (SFBAJGS) – Jeremy Frankel, President – we Salute you!
