NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jewish Communal Fund (JCF), an independent public charity that facilitates charitable giving for more than 6,000 fund holders through a popular giving vehicle known as a donor advised fund, launched its Private Client Group (PCG) Tuesday, Nov. 11 at an exclusive auction preview of Christie's Post-War & Contemporary Art sale. The evening featured a conversation with JCF fund holders Barbara and Donald Jonas, and their son, John Jonas, moderated by Walter Sweet of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. The Jonas family spoke about how JCF helped them transform a world-class art collection into a philanthropic capital.
Entry into the Private Client Group of JCF offers a variety of compelling services for wealth creators, inheritors and entrepreneurs, whether they are new to charitable giving or seasoned philanthropists exploring alternative vehicles. JCF's PCG is open to clients with fund balances of $1 million and above. Enhanced services include complimentary philanthropic, investment and other advisory sessions; facilitation of international grant making; strict confidentiality; as well as tools for legacy and succession planning.
A JCF Fund offers high net worth clients significant advantages over a private foundation, enabling charitable-minded individuals to minimize their tax burden and maximize funds available to grant to qualified charities.
Private Clients enjoy maximum investment choice, enabling them to potentially grow their charitable dollars tax-free. In addition to JCF's robust investment platform, private clients can recommend an investment manager to be added to the JCF platform.
When clients choose JCF to facilitate their charitable giving, they increase their impact within the Jewish community. Every year, JCF awards community grants from our fees to support UJA-Federation of NY and promote the welfare of the Jewish community.
