Executive Compensation at the Jewish Communal Fund

The Jewish Communal Fund is a tax-exempt, non-profit 501 (c) (3) that focuses on donor-advised funds, which are funds (more than 4,200) that have been established at the Jewish Communal Fund for philanthropic purposes.

The Jewish Communal Fund manages the funds and assists the clients that established the funds on how to give back to the community.  This type of fund basically eliminates the client from having to do the research, management, and monitoring of funds, leaving the responsibility to the Jewish Communal Fund staff.

Based in New York, NY, the Jewish Communal Fund manages about $2 billion.  In 2020, total revenue was $585 million (including $194 million in marketable securities), most of which came from contributions, gifts, and grants ($525 million), and investment income/gain on the sale of assets ($60 million).
