You don’t need much money to start your own fund today. Pledge to make an annual contribution in the amount of your choosing, and it won’t take long for your fund to grow enough to begin disbursements. Invite family and friends to make donations to your fund, and it’ll grow that much faster.

Start with a Gift of Insurance
Gifts of life insurance allow you to provide for a larger legacy tomorrow, by making a manageable commitment today. For a modest annual premium you can establish a fund with a life insurance policy by assigning an existing policy to the Foundation, or by purchasing a new policy and naming the Foundation as its beneficiary. Both methods offer substantial tax benefits and all premiums are tax-receiptable. You can arrange for the proceeds of the policy to support your favourite charity or field of interest, or you can direct the funds to perpetuate your gift to the Federation Annual Campaign.

For B’nai Mitzvahs
Your child’s bar or bat mitzvah is a wonderful time to discuss the importance of philanthropy.
Funds established for b’nai mitzvahs allow for disbursements to be made at a lower asset level than those established by adults, so young people can experience how their fund can make an impact.
Make an appointment to discuss fund options for bar and bat mitzvahs. Include your child in the process from the outset.
