The Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary (JCFC) is a registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Calgary, Canada and Israel by encouraging charitable gifts to create endowment funds and using the investment income generated by these funds to make grants. We help people give back to the communities they care about in ways that are simple, convenient and lasting.

We work with donors to help them set aside or save money that will be dedicated to philanthropy. We pool these funds and manage them with care according to our investment policy statement.

  • Define your philanthropic goals
