(JTA) — The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington became the first U.S. federation to sign on with the JGooders online platform to reach new donors.
The Washington-area federation will use the JGooders platform to raise awareness for its projects and reach out to small donors.
JGooders connects donors and volunteers with Israeli and Jewish projects worldwide by giving nonprofit organizations cost-effective exposure to a large, often untapped pool of supporters around the world, including hard-to-reach demographics such as teenagers and young adults.
The Washington federation has four projects on the site.
JGooders has about 130 Jewish organizations as clients, including major groups such as the Jewish Agency, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, American Friends of Magen David Adom and World ORT, as well as small and medium-sized organizations.
