Planned Giving

Welcome! We are pleased that you are interested in learning about the many benefits of planned giving. A planned gift is a charitable gift that you decide now to make at some time in the future as part of your estate and gift plan. A planned gift can benefit you and loved ones that you name. At the same time, it stands as a lasting reminder to your children and succeeding generations of the values and charitable works that are most important to you.

If there is a Jewish Federation in your community, we encourage you to contact the Federation directly if you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit through a planned gift. To find your local Jewish federation, you may search via our Federation Finder. If there is a Jewish Community Foundation in your community, your Jewish Federation can connect you with it.

If you live in a Network community, a member of the Planned Giving Team at The Jewish Federations of North America would be very pleased to help you.
