Planned Giving & Endowments

Your life is rooted in Jewish experiences connecting you to the Jewish community. By establishing an endowment fund, using planned-giving tools tailored to support your financial goals, you can leave a legacy that will ensure that the traditions and institutions that mean so much to you today will be there for future generations. It just requires planning.

Planned giving offers many benefits beyond the legacy you leave behind. If you give during your lifetime, you may receive charitable income-tax deductions, and you demonstrate to your family the depth of your philanthropic commitment and the importance of “giving back” to the Jewish community. You leave your children, your grandchildren, and your community an invaluable inheritance and a lasting testimony to your values.

An added benefit is you may designate how your gift is to be used: 1) to provide unrestricted funds to help meet community needs now and in the future or 2) to provide permanent resources through an endowed fund to aid identified programs, projects, agencies, organizations, or initiatives that are of particular interest to you and your family. It’s all up to you.

Jewish Federation of NENY is your partner in helping you realize your philanthropic goals, building a lasting testament to your name that meets your specific needs, vision, and objectives.

Secure the Jewish future today for your family, your community, and your people.
