A Day Of Philanthropy

This article was first published as “Learning, music, wine at JCF’s first Day of Philanthropy” in JWeekly.

Buoyed by the energy and sense of community generated by its centennial FedFest 100 in April, the S.F-based Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund is rolling three of its annual marquee events into a single Day of Philanthropy on Nov. 16 in San Francisco.

The daylong event will include the federation’s annual tax and estate planning seminar,  its luncheon honoring leading philanthropists and the Business Leadership Council’s Jewish vintners winetasting.

Bluegrass mandolin player David Grisman and klezmer clarinetist Andy Statman headline the luncheon entertainment. Also on offer during the day is a free series of philanthropic education workshops.

“We were inspired by the feedback from the FedFest celebration,” said Mark Reisbaum, the federation’s chief endowment officer. “There was great energy around having activities that appealed to the entire community.”
