How are membership dues determined?

The Task Force relies on annual dues from its members, which enable us to continue and expand our activities. Outside of this, we do not fundraise, but ask our membership of more than 100 foundations, federations, and communal organizations to pay on a sliding scale based on their size and level of engagement.

Can I donate without becoming a member?

Yes, for more information on donating CONTACT US or visit our online donations page.

Are membership dues tax deductible?

Yes, the Task Force sits within the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and falls under its 501(c)(3) and Federal Tax ID, which means your membership dues are tax deductible in the United States. Please contact your tax advisor for donations made outside of the United States.
