The Champaign-Urbana Jewish Endowment Foundation acts semi-independently to give all members of our community means to arrange for long-term support of Jewish programs through donations to an existing endowment or through the creation of a new endowment tailored to the wishes of the donor. The bulk of CUJEF investments are in a well diversified pool of low expense stock and bond index funds. Earnings are allocated monthly to each endowment in proportion to the total amount donated to the fund capital plus any unspent income of the fund. All funds are audited annually by an independent CPA firm.
For additional information about CUJEF and establishing an endowment or contributing to an existing endowment contact the CUJF office at: 217-367-9872 or the Foundation co-chairs: Art Siegel or Barry Weiner
