The Advisors Philanthropy Initiative (API) exists to promote philanthropic giving from clients of estate planning and planned giving professionals in the Broward community to the Jewish Community Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Broward County and its beneficiary agencies.
API serves as a foundation outreach arm to professional communities with these distinct purposes:

  1. Create partners in professional communities who have the ability to motivate potential donors to include the Federation and its beneficiary agencies and synagogues as a part of their estate plans.
  2. Educate professionals on the work of the Federation, both local and international, and its partner agencies and synagogues.
  3. Provide professionals different opportunities to connect with colleagues and provide continuing education resources for their professional and personal benefit through seminars and gatherings held throughout the year.
