The Alpert JCC & Jewish Long Beach are thrilled to be part of Long Beach Gives once again this year!

On September 23, more than 200 nonprofit organizations will be rallying supporters from every corner of Long Beach to help local nonprofit organizations thrive.


This year, we are committed to raising $60,000 for our Senior Adult Meal Delivery Program. Through this program, we provide senior adults a healthy and delicious meal who are housebound due to COVID-19 at no cost.

For over 72 years, the Alpert JCC has brought families, children, and seniors together to learn, share, and grow in a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment.

As a proudly Jewish organization, the Alpert JCC enthusiastically welcomes and reaches out to people of all ages, races, faiths, and backgrounds while embracing Jewish values like learning, self-improvement, wellness, the importance of family, the joy of life, and giving back to our wonderfully diverse community, both locally and around the world.
Your support is especially meaningful during this unprecedented and incredibly challenging time. Here at the Alpert JCC, we are doing everything we can to keep our community together even though over 50% of our membership was put on hold. When the pandemic hit, our staff quickly sprung into action— developing remote fitness and Jewish cultural classes, delivering meals to our senior community members, offering a listening ear, and providing essential childcare and children’s educational services—these are just a few examples. We could not do this without you.

Join the Chai Society

The Alpert JCC’s Chai Society consolidates donor giving into a one-time integrated ask with the choice of a multi-year commitment. Donors are able to designate their gift to the programs and areas of their choice. These contributions reach all corners of our center. Please consider joining the Chai Society and enjoy special benefits and privileges.

Honor a Friend or Family Member

Tribute and memorial contributions are a meaningful way to celebrate, honor or memorialize friends and family by making gifts in their name. Gifts may be designated to a particular fund or area at the Alpert JCC or you can designate that your gift be used where the need is greatest. Your gift will be acknowledged by a letter to the individual or family expressing your sentiment and announcing your gift in their honor.

Create a Legacy

There are many ways to leave a legacy, and for those who would like their legacy to include a long-term gift to the Alpert JCC, there are three options to consider — planned giving, endowments and non-traditional gifts.

Planned gifts are designed to fit within a donor’s comprehensive estate plans, fulfilling the donor’s philanthropic goals, reducing income taxes, avoiding capital gains or estate taxes, and retaining lifetime income if desired, all while helping to guarantee the Alpert JCC’s future financial support. Common forms of planned giving include bequests and charitable gift annuities.

A non-profit’s endowments represent its permanently held capital. Depending upon the guidelines established for each particular endowment, income and/or principal from the endowment can be used to support the Alpert JCC’s work. Endowments provide a secure source of long-term support.

Non-traditional gifts to the Alpert JCC could include gifts of personal property, life insurance policies, retirement plans, real estate and appreciated stocks.
