IT’S YOUR LEGACY represents a shared commitment by Twin Cities area community organizations, schools, and congregations to work together to secure a more vibrant Jewish future.
IT’S YOUR LEGACY allows you to easily create a legacy benefiting one or more of the organizations that are important to you.
Creating your legacy empowers you to further the work and values that are important to you. You can:
PERPETUATE the Jewish traditions and values you cherish
PRESERVE the programs and organizations you care about
PLAN for your family’s philanthropic interests and enjoy tax advantages
Creating a legacy is a meaningful, personal way to honor loved ones, and to teach your children and grandchildren the value of philanthropy. By leaving a legacy you will help ensure a strong, vibrant and engaging community into the future.
You can make a commitment, either through a current or future gift to a local Jewish organization’s endowment fund, or by declaring your intent to remember Jewish causes in your will or estate plans.
Your legacy gift of any size can be customized and structured to fit your dreams, lifestyle, family, and financial needs. You can provide support for a particular institution or a broader area of interest (e.g., elderly care, Jewish education, summer camp experiences, programming for community members with special needs, or scholarships for Israel experiences.)
IT’S YOUR LEGACY is an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater St. Paul and the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, created in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s LIFE & LEGACY™ program.
