The Foundation can help you serve and bring added value to your clients

The Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego has a long history of working with Attorneys, Financial Advisors, and Wealth Managers, providing you with tools to engage your clients in charitable conversations.

This program provides multiple benefits including: listing on our website, networking with like-minded professionals, access to our annual gathering, and exclusive invitations to professional advisor events.

We will meet with you and your client to review their options and collaborate to ensure the most creative techniques are applied to their charitable giving. We concentrate on documenting and honoring the donor’s intentions for lifetime and legacy planning.
