"I did not find the world desolate when I entered it.
And as my parents planted for me before I was born, so do I plant for those who will come after me." -Talmud
Jewish Federation Foundation of Pittsburgh
Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor's Foundation and Finance committees
The Jewish Federation staffs the Foundation, and provides the resources necessary to run it from the Federation operating budget.
While the Federation Annual Campaign funds are distributed in full each year to provide operating funds for the Federation and its network of beneficiary agencies, the Foundation maintains the endowment funds created by community members on behalf of each of the Foundation partners for the long-term sustenance of Jewish community life in Greater Ann Arbor.
While the Annual Campaign provides for the daily needs of the Jewish community, Foundation endowments assure its future financial stability and that the programs and agencies that serve the Jewish community will always be there for us.
The creation of an endowment in the Jewish Community Foundation can be a way to remember a loved one, preserve a beloved program or agency, assist in your personal estate planning or create a lasting legacy of your own.
To explore the possibilities that the Jewish Community Foundation holds for you, simply contact the Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor.
By perpetuating your gift to the Federation's Annual Campaign, you can ensure the community's operating needs are met in the future. more
