An anonymous donor to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh has agreed to match every donation make to the Ukraine Relief Fund, up to $500,000, according to Federation officials.

One hundred percent of all contributions, net of credit card fees, will be sent to the Federation’s overseas partners — the Jewish Agency for Israel, the Joint Distribution Committee and World ORT — for Ukraine relief. Donations can be made at jfedpgh.org/ukraine-emergency.

Some of the actions of the Federation’s overseas partners include: helping people make aliyah to Israel; securing the local community and its institutions; maintaining critical welfare services; assisting internally displaced people in multiple locations; launching an emergency hotline; securing temporary housing for people in transit; purchasing satellite phones to maintain communications across the region; and securing five Jewish schools and training staff to manage crisis needs.
