Create a Jewish Legacy

Jewish tradition teaches that one of our key responsibilities is to make the world a better place for future generations. Chances are you already donate generously to the Jewish charitable organizations of your choice. But have you considered including those organizations in your will, so you can continue to make a difference for generations to come?

Your legacy can feed the hungry, care for our elderly, and educate our children. It can strengthen Jewish identity, preserve our culture and heritage, and protect the State of Israel. Now you can make a difference. Your bequest or other planned gift to endow the organizations you care deeply about will keep our Jewish community strong for generations. It’s a reflection of your love of family, community and sacred Jewish values.

What will your legacy be?Dozens of Dallas area Jewish agencies, synagogues, and other organizations have partnered with the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation to encourage legacy gifts that will sustain our Jewish community for future generations.

Options include:

  • A simple bequest in will or trust
  • An outright gift using appreciated assets or cash
  • An IRA or pension plan
  • A life insurance policy
  • A charitable gift annuity
  • A charitable remainder trust

Your legacy gift of any size can be structured to fit your lifestyle, goals, family and financial needs. A legacy gift is a simple and meaningful way to help guarantee a strong Jewish community for generations to come.
