Future Focus Fund

The Jewish Film Institute plays a vital role in the Jewish cultural landscape. But it can only do so with help from forward-thinking, committed supporters - people who want to help our programs reflect the diversity and vitality of Jewish life, for generations to come.

Long-term financial security for JFI is the building block for future success and will:

  • Allow JFI to weather volatile economic shifts with minimal impact on programming
  • Secure our future in the Ninth Street Independent Film Center
  • Provide the necessary flexibility for JFI to continue innovating to meet the demands of a dynamic media field

Why the Future Focus Fund Matters:

To help ensure the continuity of our role in Jewish cultural life by encouraging our most loyal supporters and friends to include the organization in their intentions for planned gifts.
Loyal supporters and friends who make a planned gift to SFJFF have the satisfaction of knowing that what they care about endures, and have the confidence that their legacy gift will go far.
A legacy gift can solve a funding shortfall, assure financial stability, upgrade systems and significantly enhance programming. Audiences are the beneficiaries of the support of the Future Focus Fund donors. Your support of the Future Focus Fund will ensure our impact for decades to come.

To discuss planned giving opportunities confidentially, please contact:
