Ways to Give

Single/Monthly Donation

You may donate in honor or memory of someone special. We will send notification of your generous gift.


Full Circle Club

JIFLA Mitzvah Project

B’nai Mitzvah or confirmation class students donate a portion of their gifts, or raise a small sum to donate to JIFLA, meet with members or directors of JIFLA to learn about the loan programs and how this type of charitable giving fits into the Jewish view of tzedakah, and learn some about basic financial literacy.

Stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have appreciated in value may be an attractive donation for you under current tax laws.  When you transfer ownership to JIFLA, you receive a charitable income tax dedication to the full extent allowed by law.

Create a Named Fund

Named Funds offer a way for friends, family members, neighbors, colleagues, and others to commemorate a special event or loved one.  These funds build a meaningful legacy that keeps their memory alive or honors individuals.

Become a Guarantor

Enable a loan with your backing. A guarantor is usually a close friend or relative. While the borrower makes monthly payments, the guarantors will be responsible for repaying the loan if the borrower’s payments are not made.  For loans of $1,000 or less, a guarantor may not be required.
