Making a Solid Investment to Secure Our Future

We maintain our investments through our business arm, the Associated Jewish Charities, and manage the Jewish Community Investment Fund (JCIF). The JCIF is a commingled investment fund comprised of Associated endowments, foundations and donor-advised funds, as well as investments of numerous organizations and foundations.

The JCIF is managed by our Investment Management Committee, a team of 25 volunteer leaders with extensive investment expertise. Led by Ira Malis and aided by an executive committee and four sub-committees, the Committee is responsible for review and oversight. Day-to-day operations are handled by our professional staff and aided by investment advisor, Fund Evaluation Group, and custodian, Wilmington Trust. The JCIF is audited annually by RSM US LLC.
