Donor Appreciation Lists

To all Jewish Federation of Collier County donors, we say, “THANK YOU, TODAH RABAH, MERCI, GRACIAS, GRAZIE, SPASIBO,” and we really appreciate you supporting our efforts to create a vibrant Jewish community in Southwest Florida.


The Board of Trustees has decided that it is time to say “thank you” in a more formal way. We wish to show the community how much we appreciate each and every one of our donors by publicly thanking them in publications, namely the Federation Star and our yearly report. This means that starting this fall – in October, November and December – we will be publishing the names of the people who have made a commitment to the Jewish Federation of Collier County 2016 Annual Appeal. In the annual report to the community, which will be published in early 2017 for the 2016 appeal, there will be levels of giving, and names will appear within the levels, without any specific amounts.


We know that some people prefer to not be listed or just listed as anonymous. In order to facilitate this, there are three ways to opt out:

1) complete and send in the form below

2) email Julie Hartline at jhartline@jewishnaples.org

3) call the Federation office at 239.263.4205 and ask for Julie Hartline


We know that you are as proud of your gift as we are grateful to be the community-building organization that accepts your gift on behalf of our entire community, locally and internationally. We all share this pride and love of our community. Again we say “THANK YOU, TODAH RABAH, MERCI, GRACIAS, GRAZIE, SPASIBO,” and we really appreciate you!
