For many, the tradition of caring for others in need began with dropping coins into the family tzedakah box. Jewish philanthropic tradition continues to strengthen the Canton Jewish com-
munity for today and for the future. The Canton Jewish Community Feder-
ation (CJCF) Endowment continues to grow and change to accommodate shifts in community needs and priori-
ties and in donors’ philanthropic interests and goals.

THE CJCF ENDOWMENT offers many opportunities for individuals to con- tinue the tradition of tzedakah and enhance our community’s resources, while affording the maximum tax benefits of charitable giving.

Charitable funds established with the Canton Jewish Community Federation Endowment during a donor’s lifetime may be funded with almost any type of asset and augmented at any time. Gifts to the Unrestricted Endowment Fund provide the CJCF Endowment with the financial resources that may be used for ongoing or pilot projects, new innovative programs or in times of emergency.
Philanthropic or donor advised funds enable donors to make ongoing recommendations of individual grants
from their funds. Donors who wish to

support specific agencies or their specific charitable interests may do so through designated endowment funds.

Donors may also achieve their individual charitable and financial goals by deferring gifts until later in life or by planning gifts that become effective upon their demise. A bequest written in a will is a simple way to support the CJCF Endowment.
Life income plans, which may include charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts, provide income to the donor or a loved one for life, then benefit the CJCF Endowment. Charita- ble lead trusts benefit the CJCF Endow- ment now, and later provide benefits to the donor’s family. Naming the CJCF Endowment as beneficiary of retire- ment plan proceeds at death may gen- erate substantial income and estate tax savings. Gifts of life insurance policies are another way to create a legacy for the future.

Your gift to the Jewish Federation provides hope, restores dignity,
pays for food, medicine and heat
for Jews around the world,
in Israel, the former Soviet Union,
Ethiopia and here at home.
