Keshet is committed to providing adults with meaningful days. For most, this means having a job. Nationally, less than one of every two working age adults with intellectual disabilities is part of the labor force. At Keshet, our goal is to support the employment goals of all adults who want to work.
We can only process United States coins.
Please place your coins in a plastic bag, container or box. We prefer containers that seal or have lids. For large donations, we can make arrangements to return your container if requested at the time of donation.
When you donate to Coins for Keshet, you will be asked whether you want to receive a tax receipt. At your request, we will email you a tax receipt after your coins have been processed. This may take a few weeks after you make your donation.

This school year, Keshet and Schechter have launched an inclusive kindergarten program, where students with disabilities will learn alongside typically developing peers. Not only does this commitment demonstrate a belief that everyone benefits when everyone is included, it also addresses a gap in services available in our community.
Keshet is so fortunate to have incredible DSPs like Jordan Spiwak, who believe wholeheartedly in Keshet’s mission and care so deeply for our participants. Working at Keshet has completely changed his life for the better, giving him a sense of purpose and a deeper connection to his Jewish identity.
