The Year in Review The Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis continues to focus on the needs of our community for today and tomorrow. For over 107 years this tradition of tzedakah has endured from generation to generation. Whether it is responding to needs of victims of natural disasters in New Jersey or long-term needs of Israeli seniors and families, we are there to help.
This year we experienced increased growth in the Endowment Fund thanks to our donors’ generosity. We received a significant gift that will perpetuate Melvin Simon’s dedication to helping to sustain the needs of our community through annual distributions to the Federation Annual Campaign. This gift is an inspiration, demonstrating that caring and concern can ensure that an individual can have an impact after he or she is gone. We are appreciative of all gifts that strengthen our community for today and for the future. The Federation Endowment holds $90,450 million in over 320 endowment funds. These funds include the JFGI Unrestricted Endowment Fund, as well as donor designated restricted and unrestricted funds, custodial funds for Federation agencies and other non-profit
organizations and donor advised philanthropic funds. This year’s personalized service of the Federation’s Donor Advised Fund program enabled donors to recommend $2.6 million in grants through their funds benefiting Jewish and civic charities. With more than $41 million in 107 Donor Advised Funds, donors recommended 207 grants to over 220 charities in their areas of interest. Donor Advised Funds offer convenience and simplicity in helping families and individuals achieve their charitable giving goals. Unrestricted and restricted funds provide generous financial support for creative new services, as well as for specific purposes. In 2012 grants totaling more than $2.8 million were awarded from the $35 million in our restricted and unrestricted funds. Due to the foresight and generosity of community donors through the years, the Federation’s Unrestricted Endowment Fund of $9.9 million was able to distribute a grant of $514,000 to supplement annual Jewish community needs. The Federation Investment Committee of financial professionals and experienced lay leaders oversees the management of Federation endowments and assets. Guided by the investment policy, the committee works with financial consultants and experts to exert oversight on manager selection and asset allocation.
