Donor Advised Fund

The Donor Advised Fund Program at the Jewish Federation has been helping donors simplify their giving since 1971. Our Donor Advised Fund Program offers you an easy way to better manage and organize your philanthropy.

A Donor Advised Fund is a charitable giving account that allows you to recommend grants to qualified charitable organizations of your choice, take advantage of the highest charitable tax deduction available, and make your charitable giving simple, effective and satisfying.
