On this Giving Tuesday we are proud to announce our JewishGen 2.0 initiative, which will completely modernize the JewishGen website and user experience. Records will be found more easily, the website will be mobile friendly, and tools that researchers have come to expect will be available. In addition, JewishGen 2.0 will increase the security of our website, make it easier for volunteers to load and update data, and ultimately, it will minimize our reliance on outdated technologies. This last point is critical, since it will allow JewishGen to build new features and tools, in a sustainable and scalable fashion.
A project of this scale requires significant investment - nearly $750k. So far, we have raised about $300k, and now turn to you, our dear JewishGen members, for your support, involvement, and partnership.
Today we are trying to raise $50k in support of JewishGen 2.0. Thanks to a generous donor, all donations will be matched 1:1- so your gift will effectively be doubled! If we can reach our goal, we will have raised $100k today, which will be incredibly helpful in support of this project.
If you can do so, please click here to donate now. A gift of any amount will make a huge difference. When donating, you can do so in honor/memory of a loved one or friend. As always, a membership gift of $100 will qualify for Value Added Services (which include enhanced search features).
Please help us improve and grow as we continue to remain devoted to our core mission of preserving our Jewish family history and heritage for future generations. JewishGen has impacted thousands of people – we need your help to continue.
If it is not practical to donate online, a check made payable to JewishGen may be sent to: JewishGen Project JG 2.0 36 Battery Place, New York, NY 10280
Alternatively, you may call us at 646-494-5972, and we would be glad to process your gift over the phone.
Thank you in advance for your support of JewishGen's important work and for our 2.0 Campaign - we are laser focused on making this happen, but we can't do this without you. If you would like more information, please feel free to call me at 646-437-4326 or email me at agroll@....
