OJCF Community Endowment Fund
OJCF’s Community Endowment Fund provides support primarily for “Create a Jewish Legacy”. Create a Jewish Legacy is an initiative of the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation in which OJCF combines forces with our area Jewish organizations, schools, and synagogues to establish bequests and other estate gifts for our community. These are permanent gifts that will ultimately reside at OJCF for the benefit of the organization. The Community Endowment Fund also provides financial support for PJ Library in Oregon communities outside of the Portland metro region, and for the Oregon Jewish Community Youth Foundation—two critical programs for our community’s future.
