The Jewish Community Foundation is a powerful tool available to you for planning your philanthropic giving – during your lifetime and beyond.
Through a productive partnership with the Jewish Community Endowment Foundation Serving Fairfield County, you can take advantage of many tax incentives offered by the US government, and structure a gift that may contain many different elements.
Some examples of such creative vehicles include, but are not limited to:
WHAT WILL YOUR LEGACY BE?
Secure the future of the JCC, or one of our community programs, by building a lasting partnership. Your Will makes it possible. Leaving a bequest to the JCC or UJA-Federation enables you to create a permanent legacy that will help insure that the many programs and projects created and run by our community will continue to serve generations to come. Depending upon your goals, your Bequest may also benefit your family and loved ones with financial benefits.
CREATE A PERMANENT LEGACY TO PERPETUATE YOUR NAME AND VALUES, WHILE SECURING THE FUTURE OF THE JCC.
You can create a Designated Fund for the benefit of the JCC or UJA-Federation. This will be a permanent Fund in your name or in the name of someone you wish to honor or remember. You specify how a portion of the fund’s income will be used. In this way you can provide permanent resources to aid certain programs, projects, or initiatives which are of particular interest to you and your family.
If you make this gift during your lifetime, you will receive a charitable income tax deduction; if you make the gift through your estate, your estate will receive a tax deduction. Perhaps most important, is the enduring nature of this type of gift. You may use this fund to perpetuate your family name and Jewish values long beyond your life.
NOW, GIVING DOESN’T MEAN GIVING AWAY!
In exchange for your Gift on Behalf of the JCC or UJA-Federation, YOU CAN RECEIVE GUARANTEED INCOME FOR LIFE. A CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITY offers significant benefits. In addition to providing you or loved ones with income for life, the Gift Annuity offers significant tax benefits for you and your estate. As a charitable contribution, it can be a permanent legacy that allows you to be there to help secure the future of our most important programs.
Find out how you can earn both financial and emotional returns from your gift – and find out how you can be there for your community while providing for yourself.
