BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION
Self Assessment Tool
JTAC member agencies will receive at no-cost the ASU organizational Self- Assessment kit (Principles of Effectiveness for Nonprofit Organizations) and a membership for the Executive Director in the Community of Practice (CoP).
Completion of the Self-Assessment Tool will help the JTAC and its member agencies develop and design a series of meetings, which will be relevant and professionally valuable to the members. These convenings will include offerings by the ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation, webinars by the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the National Committee on Planned Giving, special presentations by national and local experts in nonprofit management, locally developed courses, and referrals to other community events and developmental activities.
The Lodestar Jewish Donor Advised Fund will pay 50% of the cost of tuition for each participant representing a JTAC-enrolled agency who completes one or more of the following offered by the ASU Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation (“ASU”):
1. Master of Nonprofit Studies program
2. Graduate Certificate program
3. Any class offered by the above-mentioned programs
4. ASU-sponsored workshops
The Lodestar Jewish Donor Advised Fund scholarships will be available to executive directors, key staff members and members of the boards of directors/trustees of nonprofit organizations serving the Jewish community of Greater Phoenix whose agencies participate in the Jewish Community Foundation’s JTAC.
The JTAC will offer consultations to individual agencies or small groups of agencies based on needs and fund availability as determined by the Jewish Community Foundation. At the end of the first year, individual consultation eligibility will be determined and micro-grants for consultations will be made.
All community agencies will be eligible to have their organizational profile and case for support published on the JCF website in the new Tzedakah Central section. Profiles will be available to be viewed by the public in a searchable database which will give voice to the needs of agencies while also enabling donors to find organizations and programs that match their charitable interest.
All community agencies will be eligible to receive endowment-building support through the JTAC’s Leave a Legacy program. The JCF will assist agencies in establishing their own endowment programs and train, coach and mentor agency professionals and board leaders in the techniques of endowment-building. And the JCF will serve as the community resource for all agencies that need assistance in endowment asset management.
The JTAC will also serve as a central resource to all agencies for general information concerning issues related to nonprofit organizations. The JTAC list serve will enable registered users to share ideas, information, questions and concerns about the management of their organizations. It will also serve to connect Jewish communal professionals to one another in an online information sharing and learning network.
