Create a Jewish Legacy
What is Create a Jewish Legacy?
Create a Jewish Legacy is a community public awareness campaign designed to help individuals and families support the Jewish causes they are passionate about; building a strong, vibrant community, now and in the future with bequests for permanent endowments.
The program promotes the message that all of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, have the ability to make a difference in the lives of future Jewish generations.
As the central planned giving organization for Jewish Oregon and SW Washington, Oregon Jewish Community Foundation is pleased to partner with area Jewish agencies, schools, and synagogues to establish bequests and other estate gifts for our community, which will reside at the Foundation.
Each participating organization will receive group-training sessions, individual coaching and marketing support.
Why Create a Jewish Legacy?
There is a sense of urgency now to endow the future. If our community had a large endowment, in times of economic uncertainty, we would have a safety net for our future. It is imperative that we secure funds now to benefit our children and grandchildren.
In addition to helping secure our community’s future, creating your own Jewish legacy ensures that you will be remembered and that your work and your values will continue when you are no longer here. By leaving a legacy, you will ensure that the traditions and institutions that mean so much to you in your lifetime will exist for future generations.
Everyone has a unique family and financial situation. Your legacy gift of any size can be designed to match your personal circumstances. For more information, please call Julie Diamond at 503.248.9328.
