By Making a Legacy Commitment You Can:

  • Express values instilled in you from previous generations.
  • Perpetuate the Jewish traditions you cherish.

Through training, support and monetary incentives, these participating organizations are working together to integrate legacy giving into their philanthropic culture in order to assure Jewish tomorrows.
