Douglas and Shelly had been dedicated volunteers at their favorite Southern New Jersey charity for many years. They wanted to make certain the charity's programs continued even after they were gone.
Douglas: We appreciated the organization's work. We hoped to register our commitment and support by making a gift that would last well into the future.
Shelly: A staff member at the organization asked us to consider establishing endowment fund to provide annual support to all of the important efforts they provide in the community. We were directed to JCF, which would help us establish an endowment. It was easy to do, we gained important tax benefits through our donation, and JCF developed an agreement with us to ensure that our dollars would be used based on our wishes.
Douglas: I liked that establishing an endowment would help the charity continue its programs on an ongoing basis.
Shelly: I also felt that the gift would provide a legacy for us. We were both thrilled that our gift would keep on giving to a cause we love.
