Annual giving to the Campaign, administered by the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond, contributes to a secure, vibrant and growing community. Funds at Richmond Jewish Foundation to endow the Annual Campaign commitments are known as Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowments (PACE) and Lion of Judah Endowments (LOJE). Such funds will maintain for Jewish causes in Richmond, Israel and around the world. This is one way to give through the Foundation to provide for our community. For a woman to be recognized as a LOJE – Lion of Judah Endowment – a commitment to an Annual Campaign Continuity Fund of at least $125,000 is required. LOJE donors can wear the Or L’Atid (light of the future) flame on their Lion of Judah pin.
One of the most satisfying aspects of philanthropy is the ability of the donor to participate in the grant-making process. Donor Advised Funds represent a unique opportunity to do just that and can be established with a minimum gift of $5,000. Under our Donor Advised Fund program, donors or their designees make recommendations for grants to qualified charities. These funds support social service programs, education, the arts and many other sectarian and non-sectarian causes. Most importantly, they are a substantial source of support for our affiliating agencies, synagogues, special program grants throughout our community, the Foundation’s own Genesis Fund, additions to the Foundation’s Special Purpose Funds as well as for gifts to the Federation’s Annual Campaign.
