About Foundation

The Foundation of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation has earned the reputation of being a trusted philanthropic partner for more than 50 years working with donors, professional advisors and Jewish agencies and synagogues to build a strong Jewish future in Miami, Israel and around the world. Our Foundation holds more than $500 million in assets, representing more than 700 individuals, families and organizations.

In addition to serving as a one-stop source for smart, tax-wise giving, The Foundation can help with:

  • Finding the best giving options to meet your needs, lifestyle and interests
  • Sharing your values with those you care about
  • Engaging your family in conversations about giving

The Foundation works with individuals and families on their charitable giving today through our donor-advised fund program. Donors can establish their own "charitable bank account" and recommend distributions from their fund to support almost any charitable organization - Jewish or secular, local or global.

Hundreds of donors have also entrusted their Jewish legacy with The Foundation, matching their values and passions with the community's needs. These legacy commitments will provide the Federation with the resources to care for those in need, meet unexpected challenges and plan for the future, now and forever. Through The Foundation of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, you can do something lasting and significant for the community you care so much about. Creating your Jewish legacy ensures that you will be remembered and your values will continue beyond your lifetime.

The Foundation is proud to launch our new Book of Life, an online album containing stories and photos of those donors who have generously included the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and/or any of our Create A Jewish Legacy partner organizations in their estate plan.
