It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the DJCF Annual Meeting on Monday, October 29th at 7 p.m. The entire community is invited to enjoy this free event that promises to be an inspirational program full of lavish desserts and amazing announcements that will enrich our community. A highlight of the night is the presentation of Sylvan T. Baer Foundation’s 2018 Grant Recipients! On this night Bank of America, Trustee of this Foundation, will reveal which agencies were selected and what grant amounts will be given! It is truly inspiring to see the Sylvan T. Baer Foundation generously infuse nearly $175,000 into our local Jewish community. The DJCF is honored to serve as expert consult for this process.

Many people do not know that almost half of the assets managed by the DJCF are funds owned by nonprofit agencies. The DJCF/SWCF is proud to manage the assets of a variety of nonprofits , so they can focus on their important missions. The DJCF recognizes that nonprofit agencies cannot survive without financial resources. It is also clear that agencies cannot survive without the lifeblood & dedication from staff, especially the ones behind the scenes that don’t get the spotlight. The DJCF created a new project to provide an opportunity to showcase those vital employees called “Unsung Heroes”. This voluntary opportunity is for DJCF/SWCF agencies to recommend a staff person that is not generally seen but is a driving force in their organization. Since the Annual Meeting has become a source of inspiration in the community we know this will be the perfect venue to spotlight what amazing nonprofit employees we have helping to shape and nurture the wonderful community in which we live. 

Lastly, you will experience the current DJCF Board Leadership bid farewell and pass the reins to the future Board Leadership. We are immensely grateful for our Board Members and Officers and all that they do for our community. Without the Board Members and Officers, the DJCF/SWCF could not achieve all that we have before us.

The community is invited to come enjoy this inspiring evening complete with a lavish dessert presentation, all free of charge. It will be held at the Jewish Community Center of Dallas.
