Support Today – Secure Tomorrow: Join Us!

Throughout the history of the Jewish people, the religious mandate to repair the world has been a unique characteristic of our culture. Our children are taught to embrace the concept of tzedakah through the examples of their parents and grandparents, volunteering, giving and caring for those unable to care for themselves.

LIFE & LEGACY™ is for everyone. Each of us, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation, has the ability to leave a legacy. Your legacy gift can be customized and structured to fit your lifestyle, family, and financial interests. You can support the Jewish community in many areas of interest.

Leaving a legacy is simple! Some options include:

  • Bequest in a will
  • Gift of life insurance (or a portion thereof)
  • Gift of IRA, 401(k), or pension funds (or a portion thereof)
  • Gift of cash or assets
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Real Estate

This might seem overwhelming, but we’re here to help. LIFE & LEGACY™ professionals can work with you and your professional advisor to identify the best option for you.

What are my next steps?

  1. Reflect on your Jewish passions
  2. Contact the Jewish Federation or one of our partner organizations
  3. Have a follow-up conversation with a Legacy Team Member
  4. Sign a Letter of Intent
  5. If necessary, formalize your commitment by consulting with a financial or legal adviser

Thanks to all the people listed below who have signed a letter of intent to provide a legacy gift to support our Jewish community through the Life & Legacy program! Thank you  Thank you
