NEW YORK, Nov. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Jewish Communal Fund (JCF), the leading collective of Jewish funders, released its inaugural Giving Report today, providing insight—for the first time ever—into the make-up, demographics, and charitable trends taking place among its generous funder network of nearly 9,000 people. With fundholders living throughout the United States and in Israel, JCF’s data offers a rare look into the funding preferences and giving trends among American Jews.
“We are pleased to present this in-depth look into our funder community—a community of funders who share a deep commitment to charity,” said Sue Dickman, the Executive Vice President & CEO of Jewish Communal Fund. “While we routinely share a list of all organizations that receive more than $10,000 from JCF in our Annual Report, this Giving Report paints a more comprehensive picture of the tremendous generosity that our fundholders exhibit, both within the Jewish community and beyond.”
One of the longest-serving donor advised funds in the country, JCF is now facilitating charitable giving for many third-generation JCF fundholders—showcasing the passion for philanthropy that they learned from their parents and grandparents before them. Now entering its 46th year, JCF plays a critical role in facilitating charitable giving for a wide spectrum of Jewish philanthropists of varying means, interests and religious affiliations.
Here are some statistics highlighted in the report that shed light on the uniqueness that is the JCF funder community:
