FAMILY PHILANTHROPYThe heart of your family's charitable activities
The JCF is dedicated to serving the needs of families. We understand that involving family in community support is a crucial expression of our clients’ values. We can help you involve the next generation in your family’s giving.
Establishing a family giving tradition that transcends generations is about more than money. It’s an opportunity for parents and their children to express their personal values and what they care about – a process that leads to the creation of a family philanthropic mission statement.
The JCF’s experts help families get to the core of what they want to accomplish philanthropically. We will help you craft a family philanthropic mission – so you can feel the impact of your giving. By working with the whole family together we help ensure the next generation is engaged and active in your family’s philanthropy.
Begin by establishing a plan
Involving the whole family in your giving priorities doesn’t have to be complicated. We can help you create a family giving plan. Start by completing our simple planning questionnaire – or contact us for a private consultation.
