A new platform
connects our
community (and our 10
partner SNEC
communities) to the
Afula-Gilboa region
while giving us options
to make a meaningful
contribution for as little
as $5.00. The Tzedakah
site is powered by
our partners at the
Upper Fairfield Jewish
Federation. When you
make a purchase or
donation using the site,
you will be asked to
select New Bedford as
part of your checkout
process. Any gifts
made to Tzedekah Shop
will be added to your
Federation giving total.

You can support the Jewish
Federation of Greater New
Bedford by clicking the
Goodsearch logo below
and using Goodsearch
to search the internet.
GoodSearch: You Search...We Give!
Every time you search the
Internet using
this logo link,
Jewish Federation of
Greater New Bedford will
be pre-selected and will
receive a contribution; the more
you search the more we
receive. Goodsearch is a
quality Internet search
engine powered by Yahoo.


There are many ways to give. Discover yours.

Annual Campaign

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Bedford’s annual campaign supports programs both here and abroad that enrich Jewish living. (Please see the Your Federation at Work section on the About Us page for a list of programs.) 
To make a gift today, simply click on the Donate button in the left column or mail to 467 Hawthorn Street, Dartmouth, MA, 02747.


When celebrating milestone events like a marriage, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah, birthday or graduation or when remembering a loved one, consider making a tribute gift to the Federation. Your tribute honoree will receive a personalized card notifying him or her of your generous donation.

Corporate Matching Gifts

You may be able to double or even triple your gift by taking advantage of your company’s corporate matching gift program. These programs are an excellent way for donors to maximize their personal contributions to the Federation. Ask your employer about its matching gift program today.

Stock Donations

There are many upsides to donating securities to the Jewish Federation of Greater New Bedford. When you donate stocks and bonds not only do you receive a full income tax deduction based on the current market value, you also avoid ever having to pay a capital gains tax on your donated investment. More importantly, you provide funds that will directly support the Jewish community both locally and abroad. Your gift of stock is an investment in the life of others.
We would be happy to talk to you, your lawyer or tax advisor about the advantages of making a gift of appreciated assets such as stocks or bonds.

Create a Jewish Legacy

A legacy gift is a simple and meaningful way to ensure a strong Jewish future for our community. Leaving a bequest to the Jewish Federation of Greater New Bedford enables you to continue to make a difference in the lives of others for generations to come and empowers the Federation to support Jewish living both today and tomorrow.
