From Our President

The sole purpose of the Jewish Community Foundation of the West is to ensure long-term financial resources to preserve all of the programs and services offered by the organizations you cherish, both Jewish and non-Jewish, throughout the Sacramento region. A growing Foundation means a growing commitment from the community to support all of those non-profit organizations that make our lives richer. Whether Jewish or in the broader community, service organization or synagogue, these organizations help us and those around us. Your support makes our community stronger.

If you have a favorite cause or you want to memorialize a loved one, you can work with the Foundation to establish an endowment fund. Endowments are easy to establish and there are no setup fees. You will be helping the community for many lifetimes. Or, you may want to create a donor advised philanthropic fund, an easy way to consolidate your annual giving. These funds allow you to consolidate your taxable deduction to a single event, while still spreading out your giving as you have historically done.

Thank you for maintaining a fund with the Foundation or for considering initiating a fund. We value your feedback, so let us know what we can do to improve our service to you and the community.

For more information about the Foundation and establishing your fund, please call me,
a Foundation Board member, or Pam Herman Executive Director, at (916) 441-1613.
