Our Story
Endowment Funds

The Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation holds segregated funds established by individuals and families.  There are currently over 800 funds opened to-date.  

They are classified as follows:

B’nai Mitzvah Fund:   

This type of fund promotes teen philanthropy (age 12 -18).  In opening a fund the teen becomes part of the Saul and Edna Goldfarb B’nai Mitzvah Club with currently over 100 members; all engaging in the practice of tzedakah.

Agency Fund:

An agency fund can be opened by either an individual or by the charitable organization.  In opening a fund in the agency’s name, you are perpetuating the capital of that fund in-perpetuity to support that specific organization. 


Opening a foundation is a type of fund that best represents the donor and their philanthropic objective.  A foundation can be: an Endowment Fund; a Family Fund; a Memorial Fund; a Community Endowment Fund; an Anonymous Fund, etc. 

We encourage donors to make donations to the funds to increase the capital which will make a positive impact in the community today and for years to come.To learn more about your philanthropic options, please contact Micah Garten, Director of Development, at mgarten@jewishottawa.com or 613-798-4696 ext. 270.
