Why the Jewish Community Foundation?

There is unique added value to working with the Jewish Community Foundation of Central Pennsylvania:

Assets stay in the community. While our investment returns are comparable to other financial institutions, we are a locally sustained nonprofit existing solely for the benefit of the Jewish Community of Central Pennsylvania and beyond.

We make a permanent difference. We’re here to help you simplify your charitable gifting and maximize the impact of your gifts. Gifts to the Jewish Community Foundation can continue working long into the future. The Foundation guides and supports you along your charitable journey. Count on us as your trusted partner and gift planning resource.

We know philanthropy in the Jewish world. We offer donors help in identifying effective ways to aid the community you call home and needy Jews throughout the world. We can help you direct your giving to target specific problems (e.g. hunger, education, family services, synagogues, JCC, the Jewish Home and Residence and/or Jews in need in Israel, the Former Soviet Union or anywhere there is a need).

We can ensure anonymity. The Jewish Community Foundation of Central Pennsylvania effectively supports all kinds of charitable work in our community.

We make complicated gifts easy. We help donors make gifts in a cost and time effective way. It is not always efficient or feasible to establish a scholarship program or private foundation. We are able to accept a variety of assets, support multiple organizations through one fund, and help donors to leave a legacy.

The Jewish Community Foundation of Central Pennsylvania effectively supports all kinds of charitable work in our community. Learn more about the good work we do by contacting us.…Call 717-236-9555 Today.
