Endowment & Legacy

The Jewish Federation Foundation – the place to leave your lasting Jewish legacy.

For more than six decades, hundreds of individuals and families – and their advisors – have entrusted the Jewish Federation Foundation with the responsibility to build and manage a permanent endowment to advance our Jewish community in Rhode Island and to strengthen support for the vital programs and services we value for the people of Israel and Jews worldwide.

The Foundation promotes lasting and creative philanthropy by developing meaningful partnerships with donors and their advisors to achieve enduring charitable goals for Rhode Island’s Jewish community.

The Jewish Federation Foundation supports the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island’s mission of caring for those in need, strengthening Jewish life and advancing the unity, values and shared purpose of the Jewish people. Through the acquisition, professional management and distribution of capital resources, The Foundation ensures that the programs, services and institutions that serve our people in Rhode Island, in Israel and abroad will be enhanced and sustained for the ages.

You don’t have to be wealthy to help.

Whether your goals include making a difference in the world, reducing your taxes, or benefiting from an increased income stream, The Jewish Federation Foundation is ready to work with you, your family and your professional advisors to meet your objectives. No matter how or what you choose to give, you will fulfill a mitzvah and support vital programs that bring help and hope to Jewish people in need in Rhode Island, in Israel and worldwide.
