Open A Donor Advised Fund

JCFW makes it easy for you to give TODAY to the organizations you care the most about. A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) can help you budget your philanthropic dollars and streamline your giving. You can make a large donation in one year, receive an immediate tax benefit, and then over time recommend grants to your favorite charitable organizations. With a DAF you can:

  • Make a donation to JCFW in one tax year and receive the tax benefit
  • Make grant recommendations the following year or years to nonprofit organizations that you continue to support
  • You are supporting the local Jewish Community through your giving at the JCFW and through your grant recommendations
  • You can recommend grants to any eligible US nonprofit organization
  • Grants can be requested twice a month through our Online Donor Portal.

JCFW has a minimum of $1000 to open a new Donor Advised Fund, and the minimum grant recommendation has to be at least $100.

At the Jewish Community of the West, we seek to guarantee a Jewish tomorrow through the creation of a culture of legacy within the community by empowering individuals and organizations to engage in effective, meaningful giving.
