Video: Jewish Community Endowment Fund

This year, the Jewish Community Endowment Fund produced a video highlighting its history and donors. It is narrated by KQED's Michael Krasny. [vimeo] The Endowment Fund began as a small community fund to receive the bequests of donors, many of whom were assisted by the Federation’s beneficiary agencies. Today, the Endowment Fund has more than $2.4 billion in total managed assets. These funds have become a critical source of financial support for projects throughout the Bay Area Jewish and general community. The Endowment Fund provides support for emergency needs and seed-funds new projects posing creative, thoughtful solutions to communal problems locally, nationally, in Israel and around the world. Individual donors and families can easily partner with JCEF through the many planned giving options it offers. Together with JCEF, these philanthropically minded individuals can join in the effort to address today’s most pressing needs while preparing for tomorrow’s challenges.
