Federation’s UJEF offers several funds and gift types to match your philanthropic goals. Below are just a few of the options. To learn more, contact us.

Fund Types

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) serve as charitable giving accounts designed and operated exclusively to invest, grow, and donate assets to charities for meaningful and lasting impact. UJEF DAFs offer access to our particular expertise in Jewish philanthropy, competitive fees, and a convenient, web-based platform for transactions; and support for donors with complex assets including small business interests and real estate.

Field of Interest or Donor Designated Funds empower you to direct your impact to specific areas of interest, such as Jewish education, Israel, or aging populations, for the betterment of our community.

General Fund Endowments or Memorial Funds enable you to create a permanent legacy in your name or the name of a loved one, with the spendable amount available to be distributed to meet critical communal needs.

Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE) or Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) funds ensure your support of Federation’s Annual Campaign will continue in perpetuity.
