Giving Tuesday gives back to donors


Giving Tuesday is a special day each year for nonprofits nationwide. This year, the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island decided to add to the day by recognizing donors who have increased their meaningful gifts within the $1,000 to $3,500 giving range during the last campaign cycle.

In an opportunity to gather and connect with a message of gratitude, 30 donors from last year’s annual community campaign enjoyed time together in the Riverview Room at Waterman Grille in Providence, with greetings by annual campaign co-chairs Marisa Garber and Rich Glucksman, as well as board chair Harris Chorney and Alliance CEO Adam Greenman.

The evening served as the perfect way to show guests how appreciative the Alliance is for their ongoing support and generosity on behalf of the entire Jewish community. As Greenman said to the group, “We thank you for supporting our work and commitment to the community. It is with our vision, our mission, and you that we may continue to do this work and serve as the community’s connector.”
