The future depends on our children and our children’s children – what better way to help strengthen our community and ensure that JFS will be able to meet their future needs than through your support.
Planned giving allows you to ensure that those you care about will directly benefit from your generosity and that your legacy will live on.
There are several ways to participate in Planned Giving, such as:
- Bequest a gift to JFS in your will
- Direct a gift from a retirement plan
- Utilize a life insurance plan as a source of funds
When discussing estate planning with your attorney and advisors, these are options that can be explored.
An endowed gift is a gift that Jewish Family Service holds in perpetuity and does not spend the principle. Endowed gifts are invested, and part of their average annual investment return is used for the purpose(s) specified by the donor. Each gift designated as an endowment therefore is a source of permanent financial support, and a donor who creates an endowed gift is assured that it will grow and continue to support Jewish Family Service.
Creating an endowed fund allows you to put your name or the name, of another person or organization, on the endowment. In this way, donors may have their names, or the name of a loved one, linked to JFS as a whole, or to a specific program in which they have a particular interest.
