Join the Mazals 2020 Host Committee!

The Mazals Host Committee plays a huge role in supporting the work of JFREJ and The Jewish Vote. Every year, we raise 10% or more of both organizations’ budgets through The Mazals. The largest portion of that comes from people who have joined our Host Committee! By joining the Host Committee, you are joining a group of highly dedicated members who do everything they can to help our work succeed. You can join the Host Committee as one person, as a couple or household, with your friends, or with your book club.

There are two ways to join the Host Committee.

Option 1. The first way is to make a donation of $252 or more online or by mail. Click here to choose this option.

Option 2. The second way is to fundraise amongst your friends and family to raise $252 or more. We’ll give you all the information you need to set up your own fundraising page. Click here to choose this option.


What are the Host Committee levels?

I don’t understand how the fundraising option works, can you explain it to me?

Sure! Think about the NY Marathon. Some people get a bib from a non-profit and raise money amongst their friends and family to be able to run the marathon. This is the same concept! You are asking friends and family to give so you can be listed as a host committee member either as an individual or together.

We’ll also give you a real-life example. Leo and Sara want to join the Host Committee and get an ad, but they only have $25 to give to the Mazals right now. They really want to get a ¼ page ad to celebrate their friend Rachel who just had a baby. They want to raise $1,080 for JFREJ in order to do that. They create a custom fundraising page and reach out to their friends, family, and coworkers to ask them to help get an ad for Rachel. Once they set up their page, they receive a fundraising packet in their email to help them reach their goal and get one on one technical support from our development team.

How do I set up a fundraiser to join the host committee?

It’s easy! When you click this link, you’ll be taken to a site where you can make your own webpage to fundraise amongst friends and family. One of our staff members, Sara or Kirstie, will reach out to you within 48 hours with some tips and we will be here to help you every step of the way!

Do I have to fundraise by myself or can a group of friends join me?

You can have as many people as you want on your team to fundraise! You can go it alone or you can ask a group of friends to join you. All of you will be listed on the Host Committee and receive invitations to the event.

What if I don’t know how to fundraise?

When you sign up to be on the Host Committee via the fundraising option, we will send you all the information you need to be successful and you’ll have one on one support from one of our staff members along the way.

I want to fundraise, but I’m intimidated by technology!!

We’ll help you with that! There will be many opportunities for group and individual support.
