Donor Advised Funds


A donor advised fund is a giving vehicle you can easily establish at The Associated which allows you to recommend grants to numerous charities on your own timeframe.

How does it Work?
– You make an initial, irrevocable gift of cash, appreciated stock or other assets of $10,000 or more to establish the fund.
– The assets in your donor advised fund are invested in the Jewish Community Investment Fund (JCIF).
– You recommend grants be made to your favorite charities, provided that the use of the grant does not conflict with the mission of The Associated.

What are the benefits?
– Obtain a charitable income tax deduction in the year of your gift.
– Facilitate your charitable giving with ease.
– Receive support from The Associated’s professional staff to create a philanthropic focus, write mission statements, research charities, evaluate proposals, and much more.
– Continue your legacy of giving by naming your children as grant recommenders from your fund or creating a legacy gift from your fund.
