Professional Advisory Group

Professional advisors play a unique and important role in the development of current and planned charitable gifts by helping donors make informed decisions about charitable giving. Sign up to be a part of the Jewish Foundation of Memphis’ Professional Advisory Group (PAG).

By joining the PAG, advisors must agree to:

  • Inquire as to whether Jewish clients have considered making gifts to charitable organizations, synagogues or schools;
  • Discuss tax benefits of charitable giving;
  • Discuss ways the Foundation may be able to help simplify giving and achieve their charitable objectives; and
  • When appropriate, call upon the Jewish Foundation to work with clients who have indicated an interest in including philanthropy in their financial and estate planning.
