Fundraise with JFS

Birthday Fundraiser

Make a difference by donating your birthday to JFS. Every dollar goes toward helping people in San Diego move forward. By uplifting individuals and families, we strengthen our whole community.


Imagine growing up homeless—your bed the back seat of a car you live in with your family. It’s a reality for more than 30 children sleeping in the Safe Parking Program at Jewish Family Service tonight. And they need you on their team.


Every year, we team up with people in the community to help make holiday celebrations possible for those who would otherwise go without. As an Embracer, you help a family at a time when they need it most.

Start a new campaign

Step 1: Give it a name.

Visit our fundraising hub on everydayhero.

Enter a few details. Add a photo. Personalize your fundraising message. And you’re on your way. Family and friends will be able to donate online, leave a message of support, and print out their own tax-deductible receipt.

Step 2: Tell people why it’s important.

Share your page via email and social media, and ask your family and friends to get involved. We’ll email you with tips to help you raise support for your campaign.

Step 3: Feel Good about the Action You’re Taking

Track your progress toward your fundraising goals and share updates with your family, friends, and supporters. We’ll keep you posted with stories about the people you are helping and the difference you are making in our community.

Whatever your idea, we’re here to help you run with it.

If you have any questions about what to do next, contact us, and we’ll talk you through it.
