Our fundraising events help to support everything from security to scholarships, children to seniors, the needy locally and around the world. By attending and/or sponsoring one of our signature fundraising events, you are not just gathering as a Jewish community, you are building Jewish community.
"For more than 10 years, I have been involved with the Purim Palooza. I'm extremely proud of how HUGE it has gotten over the years. As a result of participating and sponsoring this event, and serving on it's committee, I have greatly increased my exposure to Jewish families in Howard County. Whether someone wants to get involved as a sponsor, a vendor, or as a volunteer at any level, it's a great thing to do. No doubt, my business has grown in Howard County as a result of being involved. Sponsoring and event and serving on a committee is a win for the community, it's a win for the Federation and it's a win for them as well."
Our annual Golf Tournament brings the entire community together to spend a day on the golf course. Sponsorships at this event provide outstanding exposure to our entire Jewish community, as well as golfing enthusiasts throughout the Baltimore and Washington area. Play as individual golfer or make a foursome of your own! This event is a great networking opportunity which includes breakfast and lunch, contests and a silent auction. See photos from past events.
