Jay and Sue Price Honored for Selfless Generosity
Before several hundred supporters of regional nonprofit organizations on June 14, the Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council honored Sue and Jay Price, long-time volunteers and donors to the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, with their Voices of Giving Award. The award pays tribute to those Greater Cincinnatians for their selfless generosity in making a bequest or planned gift to a favorite charitable organization. They were 2 of 24 philanthropists recognized this year. The Prices were nominated by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.
In recognizing Sue and Jay, the emcee for the evening, John Lomax, had this to say:
Jay and Sue Price have been extremely active and dedicated members of the Cincinnati Jewish Community for many years. They have put their heart and soul into the Jewish Federation, while staying committed to other community organizations both in the Jewish and secular communities.
The Prices came to Cincinnati in 1968 and have been loyal donors ever since. They are members of the Jewish Federation’s Silver Circle Society, recognizing those who have supported the organization’s Annual Campaign for 25 years or more. They are also members of the Abraham Moss Society, which honors legacy donors who have made significant commitments throughout the Jewish Community.
Jay and Sue came to Cincinnati for work and have since established their family here. Growing up, they both encountered various forms of antisemitism, which has been a driving force for them to get involved. Participating and giving back was also a way of meeting friends, being a part of the community and living out the values their parents taught them.
In their forward-thinking manner, Sue and Jay have made a legacy provision as a bequest for the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, which will perpetuate their substantial history of annual giving
As the organization continues its third year of a community-wide legacy campaign, they are grateful to be able to count the Prices among the pillars of their community and as role models to their legacy donors. Jay and Sue surely inspire others through their extremely generous commitment.
“Jay understands community, collaboration, and the dollars needed to have a vibrant Jewish community,” commented Jewish Federation past president Suzette Fisher. “I am grateful for his wisdom, his knowledge, and his commitment to our Jewish community. He is a great partner and a wonderful leader.”
For Jay and Sue, the legacy gift was simple: “The community has the need, and we have the commitment, and energy, to do all we can to help assure that our children—really all Jewish people in Cincinnati—have a vibrant Jewish community in which to live, to raise their families and grandchildren.”
By making this legacy gift, Jay and Sue will assure the continuation of their annual giving and enable the Jewish community and other organizations dear to them to benefit from their generosity long into the future. Together, the Prices and the Jewish Federation will continue to provide a strong, vibrant, and caring community for thousands of individuals. The Prices’ faith in the Jewish Federation’s mission, and the missions of other organizations, is inspiring and fills them with pride.
Jay Price is currently Vice President of Development for the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.
The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati: We look at the whole picture, taking into account the diverse needs of the entire community. Together we can do almost anything.
