Donor Advised Funds (DAF)
One of the most satisfying aspects of philanthropy is for the donor to participate in the grant-making process. DAFs represent a unique opportunity to do just that and can be established with a minimum gift of $5,000. Under our DAF program, donors or their designees make recommendations for grants to qualified charities.
These funds support social service programs, education, the arts and many other sectarian and non-sectarian causes. Most importantly, they are a substantial source of support for our affiliating agencies, synagogues, special program grants throughout our community, the Foundation’s own Genesis Fund, additions to RJF’s Special Purpose Funds as well as for gifts to the Federation’s Annual Campaign.
