Community Partners


Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Southern Arizona

Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Southern Arizona opened the first agency endowment fund at the Jewish Community Foundation in 2005.

We are deeply committed to the future of our community, partnering with nonprofit organizations and congregations to grow charitable assets to meet current and future needs.

When you choose to place your organization’s funds with the Foundation, you gain access to our administrative, endowment and investment expertise.

It’s a win-win partnership.

There are two types of agency funds designed to meet your organization’s needs and there are many ways your organization’s donors can make gifts to the fund(s) you establish.

Having a fund at JCF gives your organization an affiliation with a respected community foundation and is a cost-effective and practical way to manage and build long-term funding. Our mission and history of service helps donors and local agencies feel comfortable that their assets will be carefully stewarded. In addition, by partnering with us, you will be telling your constituents that you are building for the future and intend to serve the community for many years to come.

An agency endowment fund also can provide peace of mind for the organization’s leadership. Regardless of changes in your staff or Board of Directors, the purpose and healthy growth of your endowment will not be affected.

We established our endowment fund at the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona because we wanted to ensure the stable growth of our donors’ investment in the next generation of Jewish leaders.  We are thrilled with the guidance and service that the Foundation provides to our community. – Michelle Blumenberg, Executive Director, University of Arizona Hillel Foundation
Our Community Legacy Partners Program grew out of our Areivim Legacy Community Project.

Tucson was one of five communities in the nation to participate in a two-year pilot program to grow Jewish legacy locally and worldwide. The program trained local Jewish agencies and synagogues to work together to build endowment funding to secure their financial stability for generations to come. The goal is to assist people of all ages and means to make individual legacy plans that support the causes and organizations that fuel their passion and shape their lives.

Areivim participants included Congregation Anshei Israel, Congregation Or Chadash, Congregation Young Israel, Handmaker Jewish Services for the Aging, Jewish Academy of Arts and Sciences (New Mexico), Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Southern Arizona, Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona, Jewish History Museum, Temple Emanu-El, Tucson Hebrew Academy, Tucson Jewish Community Center, and the University of Arizona Hillel Foundation.
