    Dear friends of JRI-Poland:

    This is the time of year when many of our supporters consider holiday and year-end
    contributions and so we ask you to give serious thought to the three ways in which
    your help can be so important to JRI-Poland at this time:
    1) Contribute to a Town Project
    There is more to do for almost every town in our database including adding more years and supplementing existing indices with additional information. Donations of
    every size are needed to keep each town project moving forward. Please contact the
    Town Leaders or Archive Coordinators for your towns to find out what additional indexing or records extraction needs to be done or write to questions@jri-poland.org. Please give generously to these worthwhile projects.

    2) Give a Gift to our Next Generation Project
    JRI-Poland has embarked upon an ambitious Next Generation project to make our website even more productive in the coming year. The "Next Gen" Project requires
    significant donations. It entails the first overhaul of our database and website
    in 25 years. It is our commitment to bring you the very best ways to access and analyze the information you need to build your family tree and retrieve the names
    of your previously unknown ancestors and lost relatives.

    I am proud to mention that several JRI-Poland board members have directed significant grants from family foundations to support the Next Gen project. While
    not everyone is in a position to match their generosity, now we need others to join
    our families with their support. We still have a long way to go and we hope to raise a minimum of $10,000 a month over the next year to make sure development proceeds at a steady pace.

    For more information about Next Gen, please write to nextgen@jri-poland.org
    and read more at: http://www.jri-poland.org/NextGeneration.pdf

    3) Help Strengthen our General Fund
    The JRI-Poland General Fund can also use your strong support. As JRI-Poland has grown over the years, we've experienced increasing Computer, Accounting & Auditing
    needs that require professional resources, and since we are a completely independent organization that has never charged a membership fee, we need to ask
    now for donations to administer our basic support structure.

    No donation is too small and every donation is greatly appreciated!
    You can donate online at: www.jri-poland.org/support.htm

    When donating by credit card, under "Town Name" please write in which town you wish
    to support, or under Special Instructions write: "Next Generation Project" or "General Fund" depending on your intention.

    If you are in a position to make a further significant difference towards the future of JRI-Poland, please contact mitzvah@jri-poland.org. Your exceptional generosity is needed now!

    Remember, we now also provide a facility to make recurring donations. Small donations from you each month, can make a large difference to us.

    Finally, JRI-Poland has been the recipient of a number of bequests from researchers
    remembering our organization in their final gift giving plans. These bequests have given us the flexibility in the past to invest in new indexing/extractions projects. We hope that those of you who are in position to do so will consider supporting the JRI-Poland legacy with a bequest of your own.

    Note: JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit organization, a registered 501(c)(3)
    in the United States, with its own administration, volunteers and fundraising. As
    a courtesy to researchers, JRI-Poland enables its data search results to be displayed on JewishGen's All Poland Database.

    Wishing each and every one of you a healthy and joyous 5780!
