Chicago Chesed Fund Joined Forces with Tomchei Shabbos of Lakewood in Support of the Non-profit World

When it comes to fundraising, every organization has their fair share of challenges to work through–but all have a common goal: helping our fellow brethren. And so, on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019, like-minded organizations across the country gathered in the conference room at the Marriot Courtyard of Newark, NJ, to support one another in order to service their respective communities most effectively and proactively.

Organized by Chicago Chesed Fund and Tomchei Shabbos of Lakewood, NJ, the second National Tomchei Shabbos Convention drew renowned organizations from cities across the country, including Baltimore, Bergen County, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Five Towns, Lakewood, North Miami Beach, New York City and Passaic.

The 2-part conference gave leaders of the non-profit world an opportunity to network amongst themselves for the most innovative strategies to fundraise and service their communities.

  1. Fundraising Initiatives: The first part of the conference focused on the exchange of fundraising ideas. Organization leaders shared different issues they experience, insights and ideas to mitigate these issues, and the various initiatives, programs, and campaigns that have been met with the most success.
  2. Purchasing and Distributions: The second part of the conference allowed individuals to network amongst themselves for the best prices for distributing fundraising materials and most cost-efficient vendors.

We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback, and Tomchei Shabbos and Chicago Chesed Fund look forward to continued future success.
