Donor Recognition

“The highest form of charity is to prevent someone
from falling into need.”


We are extremely grateful to those who contribute funds to the Hebrew Free Loan of San Diego and enhance the lives of our borrowers. The number of individuals we can assist is only limited by the funds we have to lend. Thank you for your commitment to our mission.​

Through your donation you are aiding and empowering Jewish community members to help themselves through interest free loans provided with dignity, respect, compassion and confidentiality. You are also developing a perpetual source of funding for future generations of San Diego Jewry to meet financial challenges, pursue their dreams, and become self-sufficient.
