Helping Hand Fund

JCAM’s Helping Hand Fund

Helping Hands

JCAM’s Helping Hand Fund assists families and individuals in need. The fund helps those in need by donating graves free of charge and in some cases, buries individuals at a discount to families. JCAM works with clergy, funeral homes, cemetery caretakers and monument dealers to provide the respect and dignity that every person deserves. 

JCAM is the only Jewish cemetery association that provides this level of community service to the needy. For this important program to continue helping those most vulnerable in our community, we ask for your help in partnering with us by making a generous donation. Your generosity helps those who can no longer help themselves. Below are some FAQ’s about the program. To donate, please visit here.

Thank you for your generosity. The JCAM Charitable Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
