Which of the following statements best describe your charitable giving goals?

I’m interested in making donations to multiple Jewish and secular organizations and simplifying my charitable giving.

I’d like to create a fund that supports a specific organization, area of interest or use, and/or limit the amount that may be spent from my fund.

I’d like to make a gift to the community and let the JCF board distribute funds to those who need it most.

I have at least $250,000 to invest and I’d like an alternative to a private foundation that receives the tax benefits of a public charity.

I want to Create a Jewish Legacy by making a gift that becomes effective at my death and/or pays me or someone else income for life.
