With everyone having increasing gains and thinking about giving back to charity given COVID-19, donor advised funds have become more popular. To uncover how donor advised funds can benefit you and to better your financial plan, we brought on expert Elizabeth Goldstein from the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.

The United Jewish Endowment Fund (UJEF) is the planned giving and endowment arm of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington. UJEF provides you with the opportunity to establish a legacy that will shape and improve Jewish life for generations. Gifts to UJEF can be made outright during the donor’s lifetime or through one of the planned giving vehicles. Your gift can be added to an existing endowment fund or create a new fund to support a specific field of interest, the annual campaign or unrestricted needs. UJEF allows our community to maintain a permanent, self-sustaining source of income to support existing programs of Federation and to develop new approaches to address emerging needs here and overseas.

More information about UJEF funds, gifts and programs.
