The Lion of Judah (LOJ) Step-Up Program is a three- year journey, as you make your way to becoming a Lion of Judah. In year one you will begin with a gift of $1,800 and increase at your own pace, ending in year three with your generous gift of $5,000. A part of the Step-Up Program, you will be invited to all LOJ events and will be recognized as a Lion at all events. By participating in the Step-Up Program, you are making a difference in our community today and tomorrow.
The Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) program is designed for Lions of Judah to endow their Annual Campaign gift. With a minimum commitment of $125,000 through a fund, bequest in your will, life insurance policy, or cash, a LOJE guarantees at least $5,000 will be gifted to JewishColumbus’ Annual Campaign in perpetuity. Becoming a LOJE is a powerful way to set up a legacy of philanthropic leadership, prolonging a rich tradition of tzedakah.
