Planned Giving

The JCC is the very heart of our community.

It is the center that keeps us together and helps us grow.

Make a Gift for Tomorrow

A legacy gift is a tax-smart gift that can help ensure our children and grandchildren will enjoy a flourishing Jewish community and a place to celebrate our heritage and traditions. Together, we can support programs, which foster a vibrant and dynamic JCC and help families forge their Jewish journey.

Everyone has a unique family and financial situation. Your legacy gift can be designed to match your circumstances and interests. Legacy gifts can cost nothing during your lifetime, and can also provide a monthly income for life in return for your gift.

Legacy gift options include:

  • A bequest in a will or trust
  • An individual or family endowment gift, using cash or appreciated stock
  • A life insurance policy
  • An IRA or pension plan
  • A charitable remainder trust
