Notice biographique / histoire administrative
The Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) of Greater Montreal was incorporated on June 11, 1971 under the leadership of Arthur Pascal, C.M. along with a group of concerned community members. The initial purpose of the JCF was to establish a contingency fund in the case of emergencies. The interest from the resulting endowment fund was to cover new programs necessary to the promotion and preservation of Jewish Montreal.
Initially fundraising for the fund focused on receipt of endowments, bequests and planned giving programs. Today the JCF is a leader in designed donor directed planned giving, a successful marriage for both the donor and the community. Through its funds the JCF supports a large number of diverse programs and institutions including the Jewish General Hospital Foundation, the Canadian Jewish Congress Charities Committee National Archives and the Jewish Public Library Archives, Klez Kanada, the David Suzuki Foundation, FEDERATION CJA, Communaute Sepharade Unifee du Quebec, Dans La Rue, Jewish Montreal schools, religious programs and synagogues, and so on.
At its September 13, 2012 Annual General Meeting, the JCF produced a special exhibit celebrating its 40th anniversary. A complete history of the JCF can be found on its organizational website.
