The Donor-Directed Program Loan Funds make a major difference in the future success of people who need help

Contributions are made to a new fund which is developed to fulfill personal requirements. Philanthropists can set up special programs to assist with specific issues such as: small business requirements, graduate school assistance, support victims of domestic violence, visits to Israel, family adoption and fertility issues and to aid autistic and developmentally disabled children, to name just a few. It is philanthropy based on our oldest traditions.

Funds in Perpetuity

A gift of $100,000 to HFLA endows a perpetual, revolving loan fund. The Fund is usually established in the name of the donor family or to honor and remember a specific individual. It is a comfort to know that people in financial need now and in the future will continue to find support. Loan funds are lent over and over again to new borrowers, and the funds remain to do their job in perpetuity. Loan programs connect us to Tikkun Olam, making this world a little more caring, a little more sharing.

Yout gift of a fixed amount or percentage of your estate shows your family for generations to come that helping others was important to you
