Supporting Foundations

Supporting Foundations are independent, nonprofit charitable corporations providing a unique vehicle for family involvement in philanthropy. It is an alternative to creating a private foundation and offers access to the United Jewish Endowment Fund’s expertise in administering funds and distributing grants while still inviting donor involvement. A minimum threshold exists to establish a Supporting Foundation, please inquire.
