JCF’s Memorial Funds are a meaningful way to honor the memory of a loved one. A JCF Memorial Fund can be established quickly, and can support charities that your loved one cared about, creating a legacy of charitable giving that continues for generations. With a charitable gift, you can establish a Memorial Fund at JCF in your loved one’s name. (Memorial funds can also be established through a bequest). Family and friends may make tax-deductible contributions to the fund at any time, in any amount, in tribute to your loved one’s memory. Designated family members can recommend grants from the fund to IRS-qualified public charities.
