More ways to support JFLA

Matching Gifts

If your employer has a matching gift program, you may be able to double your donation.

Named Loan Fund

Create an enduring charitable legacy and receive significant personal and estate tax advantages by establishing a new loan program at Jewish Free Loan.


Create a fundraising campaign on social media that you can customize around any type of event.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

JFLA’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah Program encourages students to find personally meaningful ways to incorporate tzedakah (charity/justice) into their new lives as adults.

Appreciated Stock

Gifts of appreciated stock are great assets to donate since JFLA won’t pay capital gains tax, but you would if you sold it yourself.You may think it will require a lot of paperwork and phone calls, but it is simple. Ask us for our stock transfer instructions, then pass them on to your broker (or initiate the transfer yourself online).


You may take some or all of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and have it sent directly to JFLA as a Qualified Charitable Distribution. This is a smart way of making a charitable gift as you will avoid taxes that you otherwise would pay on your RMD.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account that often has no minimum funding requirement. “Front load” your giving in a Donor Advised Fund. This way, you may be able to take advantage of itemizing your deductions in a single year, and then make your charitable gifts from the fund over many years.

Please contact Jodie Snyder at (323) 761-8837 or jodie@jfla.org for any giving questions or concerns.
