With a gift of at least $25,000, you can create a separate named endowment fund.

Unrestricted Endowment Fund

When you create an unrestricted endowment fund, annual distributions will be used to meet the most pressing needs of the community from year to year. Jewish Federation’s future leaders will use the money to meet the critical and unmet needs of the day. You can choose to have your gift to Jewish Federation’s unrestricted endowment, or you can create your own unrestricted endowment fund in your own name or the name of a loved one. The assets of your fund will be invested by Jewish Federation as part of its diversified portfolio, which is structured to provide the return necessary to make annual distributions.

You may also designate that your gift of less than $25,000 be added to one of the following existing special purpose funds:

Allied Fund (makes a yearly distribution to the annual campaign)

Emergency and Emerging Needs Fund

Fund for Services to Children

Fund for Services to the Elderly

Fund for Israel

Fund for Jews at Risk

There are also named funds for specific agencies, Jewish Education, Jewish Camping, lsrael Travel, Day School Scholarships, Special Needs, Jewish Poor and Holocaust education to which your gift could be added.
