Review for Jewish Communal Fund, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a client of JCF for many years and have always been fully satisfied...this organization has consistently made managing my donor advised fund account easier with a great Internet website...everything seems to be real quick and easy to do online...and records of past history of my accounts are readily available and useful...the availability of flexible investment options for funds in the account is a big plus...personal guidance and responses from JCF staff have always been very helpful...it's amazing that JCF's costs are kept so low...this is a fantastic organization and service...I'm not surprised to see JCF so often on lists of the best run and most efficient charities...

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

doing my income taxes...it's great not to have to track receipts for each charitable donations

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

ease of use and overall convenience

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely competent and pleasant ot work with

Ways to make it better...

I could make smaller donations through the donor advised fund, but I don't want to hurt the efficiency of the organization if they were accept smaller recommendations

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the word out about the advantages of their services and the very epecial nature of this organization

One thing I'd also say is that...

one benefit of the organization is that people with donor advised funds can theoretically "afford" to keep recommending even if personal financial constraints are affected by a bad economy...however, with Funds in depressed equities this may not "work"

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
