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. We all have the ability to leave a legacy, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation. Your legacy gift may be customized and structured to fit your lifestyle, family, and financial interests.

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 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 (fill in using Internet Explorer or print out).
  5. If necessary, formalize your commitment by consulting with a financial or legal adviser and then fill in (use Internet Explorer) or print out a Legacy Gift Confirmation form.
