Supporting your passion today is important. Supporting your passion forever is priceless. Through a Jewish Foundation of Greater Dayton Endowment Fund, you can create an everlasting gift and leave a permanent mark that will help provide funding for what you love in perpetuity

Since only the interest generated from an endowment fund is used, you can feel good knowing that even after you are gone, you will continue to impact the world. When leaving your legacy, you may choose to establish a restricted fund or an unrestricted fund.

What is a restricted fund?

Simply put, a restricted fund says, “I am passionate about this specific area of the Federation, its agencies, or any other philanthropic endeavor and I want to support it now and forever.” If you are interested in one of the following, a restricted fund may be an option for you:

  • Supporting Annual Campaign
  • Supporting an agency (Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton, Jewish Community Center, Jewish Family Services)
  • Supporting a specific program or event
  • Supporting your synagogue or organization

What is an unrestricted fund?

The Dayton Jewish community has been overwhelmingly generous and supportive. You care about the future and trust that your fund will be used for the betterment of the community, whatever it may be at the time. With an unrestricted fund, your legacy will help provide for various Federation programs and agencies, based on where the need is greatest.
