Annual Campaign Endowments

Perpetuate your family name, the name of an honored individual and your commitment to Jewish continuity by establishing an annual endowment fund. An annual endowment permanently endows your annual gift to the Jewish United Fund Campaign.

Establishing an Endowment

By providing a permanent endowment you will help JUF prepare both for needs we can anticipate and for unexpected occurrences. Your endowment fund can be created using almost any type of asset, including cash, appreciated assets (such as common stock, real estate or bonds), or valuable jewelry or works of art. We will invest your gift to maximize its value, thereby insuring that the income produced funds an annual Campaign gift in your name. Meanwhile, the principal remains intact as a permanent resource for the Jewish community.
