Join an AJC Giving Society

AJC’s Donor Recognition Societies – the National Leadership Council (NLC), the Marshall Society, and the Visionaries – pay tribute to our most generous donors. Members partner with AJC to advocate for Israel and the Jewish people at the highest levels of influence – at home, in Washington, and around the world. Each successive level of giving earns increased access to AJC’s unparalleled diplomacy, leadership missions and other unique advocacy opportunities.

Your commitment strengthens our ability to initiate and respond to global challenges. Our decades-long relationships with heads of state, government officials, and other influential leaders around the world enable our global diplomacy and legislative advocacy to achieve results.

We also encourage you to engage with AJC’s work by taking advantage of the many leadership opportunities available.

The National Leadership Council

Philanthropy has played a vital role at AJC since our founding over a century ago. Major contributions from dedicated supporters have made AJC a singularly effective voice for Israel and Jewish advocacy. AJC recognizes the generosity of its high-level benefactors through membership in the National Leadership Council (NLC).

Donors who give a gift of $10,000 and above are welcomed into the NLC, which encompasses five societies, corresponding to different levels of giving. These membership societies have been designed to provide enhanced AJC experiences for those who contribute at the highest levels.

Benefits that all NLC members receive:

Members are recognized at the following levels:
Ambassadors Society
Diplomats Society
Delegates Society

The Marshall Society

Members of the Marshall Society reflect the compassionate values and the profound vision of Louis B. Marshall, one of AJC’s founders and a leading constitutional lawyer and social activist of his time.

AJC Emissaries
AJC Activists

AJC Visionaries

AJC Visionaries are loyal supporters who include AJC in their estate plans, ensuring that AJC’s global advocacy will continue to help guarantee a strong Jewish future.

For over one hundred years, AJC’s advocacy has changed history - providing a rich legacy of accomplishment for the Jewish people, Israel, and the world. Today, our Visionaries provide for AJC’s future even as they build a personal legacy to express their values to their children and grandchildren. AJC Visionaries are recognized in our Annual Report, participate in quarterly conference-call briefings with the Executive Director, and are invited to special events at the annual AJC Global Forum in Washington, D.C.
