Contra Costa JCC Issues $200,000 in Grants for COVID-19 Relief

The Contra Costa Jewish Community Center (CCJCC) is proud to announce grants totaling $200,000 were awarded to 21 Jewish organizations serving Contra Costa and the Tri-Valley. This second round of grant making was significantly increased over the initial round last year to support the growing financial needs of organizations impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.


“The CCJCC is first and foremost about community, and we are in a unique position to lend financial support to our local Jewish organizations that have been hit hard by the pandemic-induced shutdowns to their normal operations” said Larry Jacobs, CCJCC Board President. “Our board unanimously chose to allocate significantly more funds this year to help our local synagogues, schools, and other local Jewish organizations mitigate losses caused by the pandemic.”

We all look forward to a time that we can all be together again in person, whether at Shul, at our homes, or out in the community. Stay safe and stay well.
