About our Jewish Community Foundation

The Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) is proud to serve as the central endowment fund for the entire Broward Jewish community. Governed by a Board of Trustees chosen from our most committed Leadership, JCF seeks to creatively fulfill the charitable objectives of families in our community.

Planned gifts are creative ways to support the Jewish Federation of Broward County, in ways the Federation, you and your loved ones can all benefit at the same time.

Planning your estate and legacy for future generations including your charitable interests takes careful evaluation. Consulting with the appropriate professionals can assist you. Discussing your charitable intentions with us can lead to a much better result than going it alone - and will ensure that your gift is used just as you wish. We can provide valuable information about any of the creative giving techniques mentioned in these planned giving pages.

Act now to take the steps that you need to do to be a good steward of the resources you intend to leave behind.
