A Simple Way to Manage Your Philanthropy
Creating a donor-advised fund (DAF) at JCF is a smart way to organize your giving. A DAF enables you to support the causes you care about most, without having to track receipts from multiple charities. The experts at JCF can help you identify qualified charities that best align with your personal interests and philanthropic goals.
You can establish a DAF with a tax-deductible gift of at least $5,000, and you can make additions to your fund at any time, in any amount. JCF invests and administers your DAF’s assets, verifies the tax status and mission of all charitable organizations that receive grants, processes recommendations, mails checks to recipient organizations, and sends you regular reports.
Our secure, easy-to-use online portal lets you check your fund balance and contribution history and set up new or recurring grant recommendations at your convenience.
Engage the Next Generations
If you wish to involve your children and grandchildren in your philanthropy, a DAF offers a less expensive alternative to creating a private family foundation. Because you recommend the organizations most meaningful to you, a DAF is an especially personal way to make an impact on communities and people in need – now and in the future.
Creating a donor-advised fund with JCF is a smart investment—for you, your loved ones, and your local and global Jewish and secular communities.
