Meetings Last Week
Key Foundation meetings last week included the Executive Committee, Investment Committee, Ebner Support Foundation, and the Strategic Planning Committee.
March of the Living
Thanks to our friends and fund holders who contributed nearly $28,000 in scholarships to enable local teens to participate in this year’s March of the Living program. On Yom HaShoah, they will join thousands of Jewish teens from some thirty nations, marching from Auschwitz to Birkenau in memory of the six million Jews martyred during WWII. From there they will head off to Israel to witness the miracle of the re-born Jewish homeland, honor its fallen soldiers, and celebrate Israel’s independence.
Endow Ohio Legislation
Amended verbiage is being vetted for proposed Ohio legislation authorizing an Ohio Income Tax Credit for donations to the permanent endowment funds of eligible community foundations, including the Columbus Jewish Foundation. Many thanks to Joyce Garver Keller and the Ohio Jewish Communities for spearheading this effort.
