JCFC 2nd Lunch & Learn – Discover Ways To Give & Save
On Thursday, May 14th the Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary is hosting the 2nd Annual Power Lunch. Robin Goodman, Vice President of Insurance Trust & Estate Planning for RBC Wealth Management will be our guest speaker. Robin will share ideas and advice on planned giving being an integral part of an overall financial plan and reducing tax liability.
Planned giving is not only for the wealthy – Robin’s advice can benefit every donor.
Friend of the Foundation, Leib Zeisler of RBC Wealth Management, is our event sponsor and we are very appreciative of his support.

2015 Post Secondary Scholarships Are Now Available
The Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary will be supporting post-secondary students through the annual scholarship program. The 2015 Bursary Application Form is now available and applications will be accepted until Midnight on April 17, 2015. As one recipient says, “Generosity like yours allows me to pursue an education that would not be otherwise possible.”
Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary bursaries are granted from a number of our endowment funds for students pursuing post-secondary education. Awards may be granted on the basis of need and/or merit, including academic merit, community leadership and future life plans. In past years awards varied from $180 – $2,500 with most grants ranging from $250 to $1,000. In 2014, fourteen outstanding local students received assistance in the pursuit of their academic dreams.
