General donations to Yad Ezra are used for operating expenses. Most of the funds Yad Ezra receives are used to purchase food!
Tributes and Memorials
Yad Ezra provides donors with the opportunity to honor or memorialize friends and loved ones through sending tributes.
Yad Ezra offers donors the opportunity to purchase tribute cards to send out as they see fit. We offer holiday packs of tribute cards at Rosh Hashanah and Purim, year round tribute card packs, and packs of our plantable tribute cards, which are eco-friendly.
Yad Ezra’s leadership wants to ensure that everyone is able to feel a part of our community and celebrate the Jewish holidays. Donations to our holiday appeals help pay for the holiday treats that we distribute year-round (Tu B’Shvat, Purim, Passover, Shavuous, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah).
Our educational garden and greenhouse distributes its harvest to clients of our food pantry. Giving Gardens does all fundraising independently from the rest of Yad Ezra, so your support is vital! Learn more about our Giving Gardens today. Click here to donate to Giving Gardens.
Endowment & Legacy/Planned Giving
Yad Ezra’s leadership feel morally obligated to ensure that no one suffer from hunger. A gift to our endowment provides funds into perpetuity that can be used to assist vulnerable families in our community.
Legacy/Planned Giving increases the opportunities for donors to make a major gift to Yad Ezra through current or deferred revenue. Give a gift to our endowment fund or a legacy/planned giving gift.
