The Challenge

Help get the ball rolling for the future of Jewish Howard County!

The Jewish Federation of Howard County is hosting a Bracket Challenge for those who love college basketball and want to make a difference.   Donations collected during this campaign will help fund new family programming in our community.

Winners will not only get bragging rights – but an Amazon gift card AND the power to decide which JFHC program the donations will be used to fund.
