Teens from The Jewish Community Youth Foundation in the Princeton/Mercer New Jersey area, where honored for each contributing to the Jewish organizations of their choice. These funds are matched by both the Jewish Federation of Princeton Mercer Bucks and the Ricky and Andrew J. Shechtel Philanthropic Fund. This results in a total giving amount of $360 per teen and a total group fund of $7,200 to distribute to different Jewish organizations.

The Jewish Community Youth Foundation is a Jewish youth philanthropy program for teens in grades 8-12. Each age group learns about the principles of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedakah, and philanthropy, as well as other Jewish values and how they relate to their groups' philanthropic focus: Eighth Grade-Local Need Based, Ninth Grade-National Social Service, Tenth Grade-Jewish Art & Culture, Eleventh Grade-Politics, Outreach, & Advocacy, and Twelfth Grade-Israel. The program is run through Jewish Family and Children's Service of Greater Mercer.
