Mitzvah Party

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

- Margaret Mead

Mitzvah Party is a custom designed program which provides a group (friends, family, student groups, business associates) an opportunity to have a meaningful, hands-on experience repairing the home or community center of neighbors in need.

Yachad matches the group with a project that fits its time and skill level. Yachad will oversee the project, providing volunteer supervision, project management, and assistance with volunteer sign-ups and fundraising. Yachad also facilitates introductions between the group leader and the family or nonprofit being matched.

The group pays a tax-deductible sponsorship fee. Yachad will use this fee to cover the cost of materials, tools, and professional labor.

Sponsorship Fees

Corporate Price: $5000 - $7500*
Non-Profit Price: $2500 - $3500*
Family/Friends/Individual Price: $2500 - $3500*

*Prices vary depending on number of volunteers, days of project, and other customized requests.

If you are interested in this project, please fill out this short application to request more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
