Your Legacy. Your Way.
There are many ways to channel your philanthropy to benefit a field of interest or community organization. Choose to participate directly in the allocations process or provide start up income to new and innovative projects selected by the JCF Allocations Committee. We can help you create a plan that reflects your values and priorities and invites family participation.
Philanthropic Funds and Family Foundations
Begin a new family tradition. Be directly involved in the allocations process. The JCF administers the fund and confirms transactions with regular updates on its status. Every year your family can make recommendations on distributions from your fund's income. The Family Philanthropy Institute can help provide programs and resources for setting up, managing and making allocations from your fund.
Designated or "thematic" giving allows you to support a personal concern or express your gratitude to those agencies that have enriched your life, by endowing funding for community needs, programs and services that matter to you most. Whether it's programs or scholarships for our youth, Jewish education or health and social services for our elderly, we'll show you how your individual contribution can make an impact forever, as you watch your endowment dollars at work.
Gifts which are not earmarked to a particular fund or purpose are used by the JCF Allocations Committee to provide seed money to fund innovative programs within the Montreal Jewish community. The Foundation's Allocations Committee meets quarterly to review proposals for funding and makes allocations from income earned on undesignated funds. As a permanent resource, endowment funds guarantee our financial security and help ensure that no matter what happens in the world, our community will have the resources necessary to sustain Jewish learning, culture and quality of life.
