The brand-new Founders Club (FC) is an innovative way for entrepreneurs and
founders to make meaningful gifts in support of the OFJCC and the Jewish community
in Silicon Valley.
Members of the Founders Club are asked to make a non-binding pledge to gift 1% of a personal equity stake of common or preferred stock in the start-up venture.
Execution of the gift transfer would occur at the approximate time the
stock becomes freely tradable, including a change of control, other merger or
reorganization, or an initial public offering, or at another mutually agreed
upon time. In exchange for such a pledge to the OFJCC, the Founders Club member
receives the following benefits:
- Recognition for you and your company as a member of the Founders
Club in OFJCC marketing collateral, including our annual Impact Report
and our catalogs
- An opportunity to generate significant future value for the OFJCC
at little or no present cost to you. There is no obligation to fulfill the
pledge in the absence of a liquidity event.
- Periodic communications about the Founders Club and the impact
its supporters are making
- Great karma!
Gifts may be payable in one lump sum, or over a maximum of five years from
the date of liquidity, and will fund a program of your choice, or the OFJCC's
Fulfilling the Vision (FTV) Campaign*, which supports program development,
campus improvements and debt reduction. The gift would roll over to the OFJCC's
Endowment Fund should the FTV Campaign be complete at the time of the gift.
Thank you to these members of the Founders Club for their ongoing commitment to
enriching lives, building community and inspiring Jewish journeys:

"The JCC means a lot to our family. It plays a central role in our lives, from the gym to Beged Kefet, from the ICC events to Zionism 3.0 conferences. We are grateful this institute exists and that it is able to bring our community together."

million will support the growth and maintenance of the Taube Koret Campus for
Jewish Life and $15 million will contribute to annual program development and
