Advantages of Creating a Fund with JCEF

As a result of creating a scholarship or grant fund with the Josephine County Educational Fund, there are many rewarding benefits:

    • Your gift benefits local students in Josephine County and beyond, now and into the future if you so desire.
    • You may make additional contributions at any time to your fund account.
    • Your contributions qualify for maximum deductibility for income, gift and estate tax purposes.
    • Our experienced staff is available to assist you in creating your charitable giving plans.
    • Your funds are professionally managed and pooled for diversified investment. Performance is reviewed quarterly by our professional investment advisor and monitored by our Board Treasurer and dedicated Board of Directors.
    • You benefit from our “hands-on” community relationships with the individual schools, school district personnel, business community and area service clubs which results in added value to you as a donor for reasons of advice and counsel.
    • You have the flexibility to support individual schools and programs of your choice or initiate new projects to meet unmet needs in the community which may fulfill a personal passion.
    • We handle all of the paperwork, processing, and monitoring of book grants and scholarships.
    • We furnish an annual financial report of your fund account and can provide more frequent updates if you so desire, upon request.
    • We’re local, accessible and only a phone call away for consultation and revision of critical details associated with your individual scholarship fund or book grant. You may also email or stop by our convenient office in Grants Pass for in-person meetings.
    • Finally, as a trusted local educational non profit foundation with a 50-year track record of service to Josephine County schools and students, you will be assured of the continued professional oversight of your interests and that your charitable intent will be uppermost in our minds.
