Other Ways to Give
Harold and Shirley Robinson H²YP Youth Philanthropy Program
The Hebrew Home's successful youth philanthropy board, H²YP, gives teens an opportunity to play an active role as philanthropists and as decision makers for grants to benefit campus residents.
The purpose of the program is to instill in young students important lessons about philanthropy and decision making. Each participant will make a contribution of $250 toward the grant pool. Their gifts are augmented by an endowment established by the Harold and Shirley Robinson Foundation. Students act as a foundation board, reviewing proposals from different departments at Charles E. Smith Life Communities, asking pertinent questions, and voting on which projects to fund. During this time, students will gain a deeper knowledge of tzedakah and what it can accomplish, and learn more about our campus. Student Service Learning (SSL) hours will be given to each teen who participates.
For more information about the 2017 season, please call 301.770.7746. In the fall of 2016, application packets will be available on this page.
Bar or Bat Mitzvah Giving
Bar or Bat Mitzvah is an occasion of great celebration and joy, gifts and parties. It is also time to consider oneself as a participating member of the Jewish community. You can mark this important milestone in your life several ways:
- Make a gift to Charles E. Smith Life Communities: donate part of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah money or honor each of your guests by making a contribution.
- Volunteer - bring companionship and joy to residents.
- Participate in the Home Run, the annual race that benefits Charles E. Smith Life Communities. The race is held in the fall. We encourage you to create your own personal web page and email your friends, colleagues and family to support you in this race -- and help us raise more funds for this important organization.
