The Jewish Community Foundation, the planned giving and endowment department of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, creates and administers charitable endowment funds to meet the challenges and needs of the Jewish community. The Foundation affords donors the opportunity to make effective charitable contributions of any size. These gifts enjoy the professional management of a multimillion-dollar organization and receive the maximum tax benefits the law allows.
Individual and family donors work in partnership with the Foundation and the Federation's partner agencies to enhance Jewish and community life. Donors accomplish these goals through lifetime gifts, deferred giving programs and bequests.
In addition, the Foundation promotes the creation of PACE Funds (Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowments) to augment and fortify the Federation's Annual Campaign and offers educational programming about the role of charitable giving in financial and estate planning.
