Tribute Funds

With a Tribute Fund, your family and friends can make donations via a webpage to a charitable fund in honor of or in memory of someone special. Tribute Funds enable you to:

  • Celebrate milestones like a birthday, wedding, anniversary, and bar or bat mitzvah
  • Recognize a leadership accomplishment or retirement
  • Remember and honor loved ones upon their passing

To create a Tribute Fund, you can open a new Donor Advised Fund or Endowment Fund, or you can use your existing funds. Anyone can contribute to the tribute fund using a credit card. To contribute to the fund using a check/ACH, please make the check out to Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles. Then, in the memo line, write the name of the tribute fund. Mail the check to the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles.

Donor Advised Fund

  • Recommend grants of $100 or more anytime, Jewish organizations or otherwise, locally, nationally, or in Israel

Endowment Fund

An Endowment Fund is a charitable fund that will be invested for generations to come. Each year, a percentage of the assets will be distributed to your chosen charities or causes.

You sign a simple agreement to:

  • Name your endowment
  • Select one or more grantees to support; an eligible nonprofit, field of interest, or
    The Foundation's Legacy Grants; locally, nationally, or in Israel; Jewish or nonsectarian
  • Opt to donate now, later, or as a bequest

Whether you are looking to honor a loved one's memory, or create a charitable family legacy, a Tribute Fund may be for you.
