Create YOUR Fund,

Create YOUR Legacy.

Our Funds are tailored to you and what you wish to accomplish. We have options from having no involvement at all to more hands-on involvement in grantmaking.  It's your choice.  And whatever you choose, ALL funds provide the opportunity to create a lasting legacy that carries on your name or the name of a loved one.

Charitable Remainder Trust...Receive income for life and help your community! 

Cash, property, or other assets are used to fund the trust. The trust pays the donor, or a designated beneficiary, regular income payments for life. The donor receives an immediate tax deduction for the present value of the gift. The remainder of the trust transfers to JCF upon the donor’s death to create an endowment fund. The principle of the fund is never spent and earnings are used to make grants to the community, forever!
