Support Us, Donate to Hillel 

We're Hillel, and we are at the center of Jewish Life at the Claremont Colleges. We are the building, generating, and inspiring force of Jewish learning and activism on campuses across Southern California. We have secular, religious, cultural and non-affiliated Jewish students, coming together for one unique purpose: to seek a life path that makes sense to both our humanity and our Jewishness. At Hillel we're a force for change and growth.

We practice tikkun olam — repairing the world, we create community through study and activism, we deepen our values by sharing Jewish arts and culture, and we come together at Shabbat services and celebrations. Without you, we could not do what we do. We invite you to contribute generously, and we warmly welcome you into our family of supporters.

With our increased demand for Jewish life (chai) on campus, we need your generosity more than ever to continue supporting us in doing our incredible work. If it has been a while since you last contributed or you give every year, now is the time to consider a gift of chai. “Chai plus” your past contribution (add $18), “chaicent” (add 18%), “chaitimes lite” (x1.8), or perhaps “chaitimes” (x18). An easy chai multiplier card in below for your convenience. Your contributions of chai will go further than ever, and your impact will be felt by our students.
