Developing your leadership skills and putting them into practice is not just an important aspect of your personal and Jewish development, it is a critical life skill and one that colleges love to see. All MAKOM programs offers you the opportunity to grow as a leader by offering experiences that allow you to make a real difference in the community while learning valuable skills.

Build A Tzedakah Fund
Give tzedakah, and get involved in community service and social action projects. Even if you already had your Bar/Bat Mitzvah, you can still create a lasting legacy by establishing a BTF fund.
You create a new philanthropic fund at the Jewish Foundation in your own name by contributing $600
A generous community donor provides a $400 match, so your fund totals $1,000
Once a year, you pick a qualified charity(or charities) to donate money to from your fund
