Annual Campaign Endowments

Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE)

A Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE) is a permanent fund dedicated to endowing your Annual Campaign gift to the Jewish community. A PACE fund is a lasting legacy that will continue to make an annual gift to the Annual Campaign in perpetuity on your behalf.

You may create your PACE fund through a variety of gift vehicles, some of which provide your estate with considerable tax benefits without requiring you to contribute assets during your lifetime. Choosing the appropriate option allows you to perpetuate your commitment to the Annual Campaign in a way that best achieves your own personal financial and estate planning goals.

Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE)

A woman may perpetuate her Annual Campaign gift by establishing a special type of PACE fund, a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE). If you are a Lion of Judah, simple innovative steps can put a LOJE within your reach, regardless of your age or giving level. MORE

We encourage you to contact your local Jewish Federation or Jewish Community Foundation if you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit through a planned gift to establish a PACE or LOJE fund. To find your local Jewish Federation, you may search via our Federation Finder.

If you live in a Network community (in which there is no Jewish Federation or the Jewish Federation is not professionally staffed), a member of the planned giving team at The Jewish Federations of North America would be pleased to help you.
