Create a Jewish Legacy represents a shared commitment by area synagogues and Jewish agencies to work together to secure a more vibrant Jewish future. Create a Jewish Legacy is sponsored and presented by the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation of Western Massachusetts.
With Create a Jewish Legacy, you have the ability to create one legacy gift which can benefit one or more organizations that are important to you. You can make a commitment, either through a current or future gift to a Jewish organization's endowment fund or by declaring your intent to remember Jewish causes in your will or estate plans.
Your legacy gift of any size can be customized and structured to fit your dreams, lifestyle, family and financial needs. You can provide support for a particular institution (e.g., synagogue, day school, or Jewish agency) or area of interest (e.g., caring for the elderly, helping those in need, educating our community's children, advancing Jewish life, Jewish summer camp experiences, college campus programs or support for Israel and overseas programs).
Create a Jewish Legacy Is for Everyone
All of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, have
the ability to make a difference for future generations.
Creating your Jewish legacy is simple.
Some options include:
• Bequest in a Will
• Gift of Life Insurance
• Gift of IRA or Pension Funds
• Gift of Cash or Assets
• Charitable Gift Annuity
• Charitable Remainder Trust
We realize that this is a lot to think about. We are here to help. If you wish, we will work with you and your professional advisor to help identify the best legacy option for you.
Through Create a Jewish Legacy, you can create a lasting legacy to match your values and passions with the community's needs. A legacy gift of any size can be designed to match your personal situation.
Together, we can impact the future of the Jewish community and make a difference in the lives of generations to come.
The simplest method of creating your legacy is through a will or estate plan, or by adding (or changing) a beneficiary designation with other assets, such as retirement funds and/or life insurance. You can create a Jewish legacy with a percentage of your estate or a dollar amount that's comfortable for you. You can commit a cash gift now that goes directly into the endowment. Some gifts can be structured to increase your current income, and the residual will benefit Jewish organizations you value. All of this can be done at no cost to you today.
