FJC –  A Foundation of Philanthropic Funds (FJC) is a boutique public charity offering donor-advised funds, nonprofit lending, and fiscal sponsorship services. FJC has a long-standing reputation as a catalyst for impact, providing flexible and efficient fiscal sponsorship services and uniquely customizable donor-advised funds to its stakeholders. Donor-advised funds (DAFs) allow individuals and organizations to make tax-deductible contributions to FJC, which are then distributed to charities the donor recommends. Fiscal sponsorship enables new and innovative charitable projects to receive donations and grants under FJC’s legal and financial umbrella, allowing them to focus on their mission and impact. The organization has been a pioneer in bringing impact investing to the DAF industry, deploying funds in its donors’ accounts as bridge loans, revolving funds, and recoverable grants.

Brinda’s appointment to the FJC Board of Directors reinforces the organization’s commitment to leveraging finance as a tool for social change and expanding its impact.
