Donor Advised Funds

Ensure your legacy is continued from generation to generation.

Establish Your Own Fund With Expert Guidance

With as little as $2,500, you can invest your donation in the Jewish nonprofits you care about most – with the help of the Jewish Federation Foundation (JFF).  A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) makes managing your charitable giving easy and effective.

With a simple application form, you can maximize your donation by having it managed by the Jewish Federation Foundation’s Endowment experts, allowing you to focus on the fun part – which programs to support.

Make your grants as you wish to:

  • your favorite Jewish charities;
  • other nonprofit organizations;
  • the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island;
  • and even to fulfill your synagogue dues.

Each grant recommendation is carefully reviewed to ensure compliance with IRS regulations and JFF policies.  JFF will provide you with detailed quarterly reports.

Did you know?

As of June 30, 2020, the Jewish Federation Foundation has over 137 Donor Advised Funds with assets of $16 million under management.

Practice family philanthropy easily

A Donor Advised Fund gives your family the opportunity to experience philanthropy together. You may name up to four signatories for your fund, including your adult children or grandchildren. You may also name successor signatories, to ensure that your legacy of giving is continued from generation to generation.

We invite you to review our materials and discuss them with your family and advisers. We look forward to welcoming you to our family of DAF philanthropists.
