To make the greatest impact on the charitable organizations and causes you care about most, the Jewish Community Foundation provides you with flexibility and expertise for meaningful, effective giving.
Here’s why the Foundation is the ideal choice for your charitable giving:
EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP AND ACCOUNTABILITY
Our Board of Directors serves as the governing body of the Jewish Community Foundation. The Directors oversee operations, set policies and approve grant awards. The Board is responsible for ensuring donor intent is fulfilled and that resources are available to address evolving community needs and opportunities.
MAXIMIZE TAX BENEFITS
The Foundation is a 501(c)3 public charity. Donor funds created at the Jewish Community Foundation qualify for the maximum charitable tax deduction permitted by law.*
The Jewish Community Foundation is committed to fulfilling its fiduciary duties. The Foundation conducts an annual independent, professional audit of its financial statements. We invest Foundation assets to provide support for the community’s current needs and to preserve charitable resources for use by future generations. Our Board of Directors is responsible for employing prudent investment strategies to carry out the Foundation’s mission. The Finance & Investment Committee implements the Foundation’s investment policies and monitors investment performance. We follow best practices to balance risk and return for various time horizons and charitable goals.
