Make your charitable plan permanent. You can provide for the Jewish community’s needs not only in your lifetime, but forever. Let the Foundation help you provide for specific agencies or causes. We can also assist you in providing for the general needs of our community.

Endowment Funds are permanent restricted funds where the principal is invested, and a portion of the fund is distributed annually to support your personal philanthropic mission. With a gift of $100,000 or more, the Foundation will create a permanently named fund in your honor and as part of your personal legacy.

How an Endowment Works


An established gift is made and forms the principal.


The principal is protected and invested and grows.


A portion of the fund’s value is distributed annually forever.
