All of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, have the ability to leave a legacy.
Established in 2016, this important communal initiative encourages charitable giving as an essential element of estate planning. A bequest of any amount, to any not-for-profit organization, leaves behind an indelible legacy for future generations. The initiative seeks to inspire donors as to the enduring impact of their legacy gifts, while providing practical information on tax-advantaged giving and other donor planning strategies.
Please take a moment to view our video and learn about the fantastic work being done in our community by the Dr. Noel N. Kriftcher Legacy Initiative. United Jewish Federation is excited to be a part of this project.
The Dr. Noel N. Kriftcher Legacy Initiative is an expression of the Federation mission to help our community be "Better Together." The Initiative assists our partners to encourage and implement Legacy Gifts.
A legacy plan captures your values and ideals in an individually designed strategy for how the Charitable funds that you leave for the community will be distributed. Your Legacy Gift supports the stability of your favorite organization(s), assuring annual income and promoting ingenuity and action. When you enable your favorite organization to achieve its core mission, you build a secure and dynamic future for our community.
A legacy gift is a simple and meaningful way to help ensure a strong Jewish future for our community. Please consider leaving a bequest to one or more Jewish organizations that make a difference in your life so that those organizations can continue to make a difference in the lives of others for generations to come. The act of creating a Jewish legacy empowers you to complete the work of your heart.
