Why Leave a Legacy Gift?

Your legacy can reflect everything that is most important and meaningful to you. The legacy planning process can be a catalyst for heartfelt conversations with your family and build bonds with your partners in the community.

Jewish tradition teaches us that it is our responsibility to make the world a better place for future generations. Chances are you have spent a lifetime helping people. A legacy gift is a great way to perpetuate your support for the work of the organizations that was important to you during your lifetime.

Creating your own Jewish legacy ensures that you will be remembered and that your work and your values will continue when you are no longer here. It also serves as an example of ongoing kindness to your loved ones. It teaches them the value you’ve placed on supporting the Jewish community.

“It is our hope that our synagogue and community organizations continue to grow and prosper serving the needs of other families like ours. Through our endowment gift we feel we are doing our part in continuing this legacy for our children and grandchildren.”
