In yet another year of surprises (both good and bad), we continue to see a world mired in conflict and volatility. It can sometimes get overwhelming or distracting (see Depp v. Heard) to be inundated with so much information so quickly. And yet despite all of this, our community continues to focus on those in need and provide support here at home and around the world.
We hope that these articles in “Giving Advice” both inform and educate but also that the newsletter serves as a reminder for you, the professional advisors, that the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto is here to help discuss and advise on plans or strategies for your clients in fulfilling their personal and philanthropic goals.

The Jewish Foundation and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto are excited to partner with the Jewish Future Pledge, an unprecedented global initiative which was inspired, in-part, by Bill Gates' and Warren Buffett's "Giving Pledge.” The pledge is a commitment to gift, upon passing, at least half of funds earmarked for charity to Jewish causes and/or Israel. As money transfers to the next generation, the goal is to ensure global Jewish continuity, with an aim of securing more than $600 billion over the next 25 years.
To learn more: Please visit the Jewish Future Pledge site or call Janice Benatar at 416-318-9601, and to learn more about how the Jewish Foundation can assist you or your clients with philanthropic giving, call us at 416-631-5703 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
