The KINGS BAY Y unveiled its newly expanded and upgraded auditorium — which included a total stage replacement, new flooring, curtains, additional storage and performance space, and a new television and sound system — on Jan. 14. This upgrade marks the first major makeover to the auditorium in at least 20 years.

The face-lift was made possible through the generosity of the Jewish Communal Fund.

Working with Donor Advised Funds - Opportunities and Challenges: a practical panel discussion about DAFs in today's charitable environment.

Love them or hate them, most will agree that donor advised funds (DAFs) are here to stay. This presentation by Ellen Israelson, VP of Philanthropic Services at Jewish Communal Fund, was delivered at a PPGGNY panel discussion examining the current state of DAFs in the industry from three critical perspectives: the charity that receives grants from such funds, the DAF entity that receives the tax deductible gift from the donor and facilitates grants to charities, and the wealth advisor who works closely with donors in incorporating DAFs into their charitable portfolios. This multi-faceted panel seeks to provide practical guidance for working with DAF donors and entities, including strategies for successfully cultivating DAF gifts. In this presentation, Ms. Israelson debunks common myths about donor advised funds.
