Why Support JELF?
College is getting more expensive
The average cost of college in the United States is $25K a year. This cost is only going to continue to grow.
Income rarely matches college costs
31% of the families JELF serves have a household income of under $50K. The Jewish community is not immune to debt or hardship.
JELF's repayment rate is 99%
This means that your donation will live in perpetuity - as loans are paid back, these dollars are "recycled" to help more students going forward.

With JELF's 0% interest support, Arielle and her two siblings were able to enroll in college full-time and work towards earning their degree in four years.

College provided us with the opportunities to get where we are today and with our career and family. We feel really strong about JELF giving kids more opportunities.

JELF was a huge assistance to me when I was a student - something I will never forget! I now enjoy being able to give back and help other students pursue their higher ed goals.

Higher education is a priority for us so JELF’s mission of making it more accessible to those in need is something we love to support. There is no better gift than giving someone an opportunity they may not otherwise receive.
