Benefits of Starting a Fund

You can perpetuate your legacy to the Jewish community by creating an endowment through the United Jewish Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund is the endowment and planned giving arm of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington. It provides an opportunity to establish a legacy that will shape and improve Jewish life for generations. The Endowment Fund allows our community to maintain a permanent, self-sustaining source of income to support existing programs of the Federation and to develop new approaches to address emerging needs here and overseas.

For more information about the Endowment Fund or any of the options below, contact Beth Goldstein (301) 230-7228.
