TJF is here to care for the needs of the Jewish community

It has been just over four months since I moved to the Tidewater area. I have been embraced by the community and greatly appreciate the warm welcome I have received. It is a privilege and honor to work with you and all of our local affiliates as we strive to strengthen the Tidewater Jewish community and our community at large. I am in the process of meeting with as many members of the community as possible and I welcome the opportunity to sit down with you. I want to listen and understand the key issues and how we can build upon our success and grow for a stronger tomorrow.

I stand on the shoulders of those who have come before me and I see it as my role and responsibility to work in partnership with you and other members of the community to build a strong endowment for our future. I thank you for your trust, faith, and confidence in TJF as your partner in philanthropy. We promise to be thoughtful and good stewards of these philanthropic funds and will continue to encourage others to invest in our future through partnerships like LIFE & LEGACY.

TJF is here to care for the needs of the Jewish community for the long-term, to address both Jewish and non-Jewish philanthropic wishes of our philanthropic partners and investors, and to put a safety net under our Jewish institutions through securing and managing endowment assets. Our mission is to increase philanthropic resources that invest in Jewish life in Tidewater, Israel, and around the world.

As TJF celebrates its 36th anniversary this year, we are turning a new leaf in philanthropic opportunities. Now, you can receive quarterly statements digitally, make grants, and check your fund’s activity through our online portal (instructions to sign up and log in below). The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact virtually all aspects of the economy, and the election could result in significant changes to income, estate, and gift tax regimes. We recognize that 2020 has been a turbulent year; our philanthropic advisors are here to discuss year-end tax and charitable planning.

Since 1984, TJF has helped donors like you support their favorite charities in smarter ways. We continue to equip donors with a maximized giving strategy through Donor Advised Funds. You can donate cash, stocks, or non-publicly traded assets to increase giving, while immediately deducting your tax. I am excited to work and meet with all of you as we continue to strengthen our local community.

Please contact me with any thoughts and feedback. Together, we can make TJF better at serving the Jewish community.

Naomi Limor Sedek,
President & CEO
