The Impact of Legacy Giving Lunch Series for Nonprofits
The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation (DJCF) and Southwest Community Foundation (SWCF) are excited to announce their $15,000 grant from the Katherine C. Carmody Charitable Trust of the Bank of America. This grant will fund a free curriculum series designed to educate nonprofits on the importance of legacy gifts, which are invested to earn income for the nonprofit into the future and how to build a legacy giving program. The DJCF/SWCF hopes this curriculum will provide nonprofits with the knowledge and tools to drive significant funds into their nonprofit agencies.
Month after month, nonprofits spend valuable time fundraising and, for smaller nonprofits, that comes at the expense of their important missions. Our community's nonprofits know their respective communities and are fully capable of serving their missions in an effective way. That is why the DJCF/SWCF want nonprofits to prepare legacy giving programs, so they can focus long-term on what is most important – their missions.
The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation has worked with compassion and drive to improve our community and the world through the development and stewardship of philanthropic resources of donors and community partners. Consistent with this mission, the Foundation has contributed more than $125 million in charitable distributions in the last decade to support a wide range of philanthropic interests, including education, human services, the arts, and faith-based organizations. By providing the highest level of personal attention, the Foundation continuously helps transform fundholders' philanthropic objectives into realities.
This educational four-session series, designed for both professional and volunteer leadership, will provide the knowledge and tools to drive significant endowment and legacy funds to your nonprofit agency. These complimentary lunchtime sessions will take place at the Aaron Family Jewish Community Center of Dallas, 7900 Northaven Rd, Dallas, TX 75230, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
