FJC is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Anne Heyman. Anne is often described as a pioneering Jewish philanthropist. At FJC, she used a Donor Advised Fund in a unique and creative way to help fund the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village, an orphanage that houses and educates young people in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide. We join in remembering her with heavy hearts and celebrating the life of this remarkable woman.
