Limited Time Offer – Do Even More in 2021
If you open a new fund by year end, we'll add a $1,000 donation to the UJA Annual Campaign in your honor and a $100 gift to the GMW-area synagogue or partner agency of your choice.
At the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ, we help our community members do more with their donations. Open a new fund, and you can deduct your full contribution on this year’s taxes and give your philanthropic investment room to grow. Whether you’ve committed $5,000 or $5 million, we provide the philanthropic counsel, investment expertise and personalized service to ensure you are giving strategically and effectively.

More Deductions, More Flexibility, and More Impact
Our donor-advised funds are a simple, flexible and tax-efficient way to manage your charitable giving. Establish a fund with a fully deductible gift of cash, securities or other property – then give to your favorite charities when and how you prefer. In the meantime we’ll invest your assets and handle all administration and reporting.
With 70+ years of experience and $40M+ in annual grants to community causes, JCF offers customized support from a team that shares your values and commitment to Jewish philanthropy.
How It Works
1. You contribute to your JCF donor-advised fund
Open a fund and donate cash, appreciated stock, or a wide variety of other assets and securities and take an immediate tax deduction. All contributions to your fund are charitable donations to a 501(c)(3) public charity.
2. We invest and grow your charitable balance
Choose an allocation strategy for your fund from JCF’s investment pools (equity, fixed, money market, ESG, managed) and your potential giving can grow tax-free. Our Investment Committee is made up of financial professionals who volunteer their time to oversee all decision-making.
3. You choose when and how to make grants to qualified charities
For both secular and Jewish causes, our staff can help you identify qualified charities that align with your personal priorities and goals for your giving. Our staff takes pride in getting to know you and providing personalized service to support your vision.
