Federation Endowment Directors and CEOs of Jewish Community Foundations are invited to join us at Planned Giving & Endowments’ upcoming Senior Advisory Council meeting in Boston at the newly renovated and enhanced Boston headquarters of Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP).

National Campaign Chair David T. Brown is scheduled to meet with us at our first session on Monday. JFNA’s Executive Vice President Mark Gurvis will follow with an overview of the Bridgespan Study and JFNA’s response to date. Thanks to Charlie Glassenberg’s efforts, we have local speakers lined up who will spark your philanthropic imagination. Rabbi Marc Baker, President and CEO of CJP, will give the opening remarks at our dinner on Monday evening, and Edward Shapiro, Trustee of The Shapiro Foundation and President of Shapiro Investment Company, LLC, is confirmed for that evening’s panel on taking a broad view of giving Jewishly. On Tuesday, Beth Sirull and Charlie will be panelists at a session on cutting edge techniques for deploying endowment and donor-advised fund assets to leverage impact and engage millennial and entrepreneurial donors.

As always, a Washington Update and review of developing law will be on the agenda. We plan to have roundtable discussions at lunch on Tuesday. You will have ample opportunity to compare notes with your peers.

The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. on Monday and conclude at 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday. Kosher meals will be provided.  

You may download the latest version of the SAC agenda below. We have not scheduled city-size meetings, so you may want to arrange to meet informally offsite with your cohort before or after SAC. If you are arriving on Sunday, you may indicate on the registration form your interest in joining a group dinner that evening.
