The Jewish Communal Fund makes charitable giving a no brainer, as a conduit to giving they do all the hard work while I simply do everything within minutes with a click of a mouse. In their role I believe that my overall donations and activity has increased and grown due to the ease and minimal efforts required.
WE SET UP OUR FUND AS A SCHOLARSHIP FUND IN MEMORY OF LOVED ONE IT FILLS OUR HEART WITH JOY AND PLEASURE EACH AND EVERY TIME WE MAKE A DONATION USING THE GOOD OFFICES OF THE JCF THE SERVICE, CONNIVANCE, THE EASE, ARE PRICELESS Setting up the fund is one of the top ten best decisions of my life. If you need referrals from anyone "thinking about joining the JCF family" and in need of encouragement and support - send him my way.
Funneling $ to CAP and MM, as brought to my attention today by the NYT shows a miserable lack of diligence on the part of JCF. Any one, or any organization that associates Israel with the terms "apartheid" or "Israel-firsters" is helping those who mean to harm us and have forgotten how to do good for Jews and defend Jews from hatred, including hatred from within the Jewish community.
JCF has been wonderful They check out each charity and notify me if there are any problems. I have been giving to JCF for many years. Each year gets an A++ Joseph Adler
We are an organization of Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren, and the Jewish Communal Fund has for many years been helping us manage our members' charitable contributions and facilitating our mission of Tikkun Olam. Because we are a small organization, we are especially grateful for the wonderful support, advice and professionalism extended to us by the JCF. They have been an invaluable resource in making our charitable giving easier both in the U.S. and in Israel.
Have been a donor for many years - it's a pleasure working with JCF. They are always helpful and knowledgable. Their online system is sophisticated and easy to use - as I said, always a pleasure.....
The Jewish Communal Fund is a wonderful organization and an invaluable resource to the Jewish community. I have had the pleasure to partner with them and to work directly with Ellen Israelson, the Director of Fund Development and Communications on getting students and teens involved in philanthropy. I am impressed by their dedication, resources, professionalism and look forward to working with them in the future.
As a very busy mother, doctor, and procrastinator when it comes to my annual charitable grants, I can always count on the Jewish Communal Fund. I am able to make the grants on line or by fax and the grants are distributed every time in a professional and timely manner. The staff has always been accessible and very knowledgeable when answering my questions.
We have found the Jewish Communal Fund to be an extremely well run organization. Their donor services are excellent and we really appreciate our ability to request grants on-line. Grants are made promptly and the requested acknowledgements are quickly sent. We feel we made a wise decision in transferring our giving supervision to the JCF.
A wonderful organization, easy to use, very helpful whenever asked to help. They make giving easy. Accurate record keeping. A classy oraganization.
It has been a fabulous experience working with the Jewish Communal Fund. I have been involved with JCF for many years and over this time I have seen my charitable contributions easily managed effectively to help many in need. Their attention to detail is second to none and I am confident that all charitable money contributed is as well as possible.
This is a great donor advised fund. Very efficien t and user friendly. It makes it easy to support our favorite (mostly Jewish Charities. It is cost effective.
This charitable fund has enabled me as a person of modest means to set aside a sum for my philanthropic wishes. This has been done in a professional and efficient manner. It serves a need that more people should take advantage of.
JCF is a terrific donor advised fund that helps the Jewish community in New York and throughout the world. Everything is extremely streamlined and the website is a terrific tool for easy grantmaking.
WE FORMED OUR FOUNDATION WITH THE JEWISH COMMUNAL FUND A FEW YEARS AGO. WE HAVE RECEIVED EXCELLENT SERVICE EACH TIME WE REQUESTED A GRANT FOR A CHARITY. THE STAFF IS EFFICIENT AND EXTREMELY HELPFUL.
I have been a donor with JCF for over 10 years and think they are about the most efficient group in their space that I've ever seen. They process requests practically immediately and their record keeping / ease of use online is amazing. More important than the above, however, is the fact that I have had Childrens' Gift Funds for my kids for several years--this is the single most important thing my wife and I have done to get them (ages 10 and 12) to understand tzedakah. A great charity whose profit gives back to the community we live in.
excellent communication. timely donation statements. easy on-line donations. highly recommended. Have had a very good experience with JCF over 5 + years.
We set up a memorial fund when our son died and now find the ease of donating in his memory a great asset. It is a simple process to get funds to where we want them. BCM
the jcf fund has been a great experience very efficient very supportive very prompt the perfect organization to assist you in handling your money
The JCF staff has always been helpful and the JCF website is informative and easy to use. The staff was particularly helpful when I recommended a contribution to a charity that was hard to reach because it was staffed by volunteers. They did a good deal of work to find a contact person and verify the charitable tax status so the contribution could be made.
Over more than a decade as a donor to the JCF, I have found them to consistently effective, efficient, and responsive. JCF is an excellent example of Jewish philanthropy at its best.
