About the Foundation
The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation has worked with compassion and drive to improve our community and the world through the development and stewardship of philanthropic resources of donors and community partners. Consistent with this mission, the Foundation has contributed more than $125 million in charitable distributions in the last decade to support a wide range of philanthropic interests, including education, human services, the arts, and faith-based organizations. Today, in collaboration with our fundholders’ professional advisors, our dedicated team is implementing innovative estate planning strategies, which provide optimal tax benefits and turn donors’ philanthropic visions into positive change. By providing the highest level of personal attention, we continuously help transform our fundholders’ philanthropic objectives into realities.
Through the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation, donor directed philanthropy may be in the form of designated, endowment, field of interest or donor advised funds for current giving or to perpetuate philanthropy from one generation to the next. One excellent vehicle utilized at the Foundation to memorialize or honor loved ones is our named scholarship program. Additionally, our legacy initiative for the future has reached an estimated $270 million in bequests and endowment commitments*. Our outstanding team of volunteers, professional leadership, and experienced staff justify our proud standing as one of the premier community foundations in the State of Texas.
Since our establishment, we have diligently pursued excellence. Of our many accomplishments, the one we value most is the trust and confidence of our fundholders and their advisors.
