The JCF is honored and privileged to assist hundreds of individuals and families throughout South Jersey and beyond in achieving their philanthropic goals.
Two of those many donors are Stephanie and Andy Zinn, a local couple who utilize a donor advised fund (DAF) with the JCF to centralize their annual charitable giving and gain many other additional benefits.
Recently, Stephanie shared the following testimonial about using her DAF:
"We opened a DAF because...
"...charitable giving is a core value in our family, and using a DAF as a vehicle is a mutually rewarding way to make our gifts. Not only can we aid multiple organizations in the simplest of ways (we don't have to keep track of receipts or other burdensome paperwork), we also lower our taxable income every time we contribute to the DAF. What's more, once invested, the money grows tax-free, thereby allowing us the potential to maximize our giving. Talk about impact!
"We can rest assured that the recipient organizations are trustworthy since they must meet certain criteria in order to partner with the JCF. At the same time, JCF reviews our recommendations to ensure they meet legal requirements and are consistent with their policies. Everything is above board!
"Since we established our fund in our family name, it signals our desire to pass down charitable values l'dor vador, creating what we hope will be a lasting legacy of giving for generations to come."
Thank you, Stephanie, for this remarkable review!
It's always exciting to hear from donors like Stephanie about how their fund at the JCF provides benefits to their lives while positively impacting others through their charitable grants from the fund. It's truly a win-win-win.
