The JFCS Legacy Society is comprised of donors who have confirmed us as a beneficiary in their estate plans by listing JFCS in their will, trust, life insurance, or retirement plan.

Gifts Anyone Can Afford

  • Make a gift now that costs nothing during your lifetime;
  • Make a gift and receive guaranteed income for life;
  • Make a gift and provide for your loved ones;
  • Make a gift and Make A Difference in our community!

Giving Options

You can donate to the JFCS Endowment or establish a fund of your own specific parameters you define. Your giving options include:

Bequest Gifts

After providing for the needs of your loved ones in your will, you may choose to benefit organizations like JFCS that reflect causes personally important to you.

Lifetime Gifts

You can choose to establish a personalized fund with a modest initial investment and continue to contribute to that fund over time.

Life Insurance

Designate a fund created through annual premium payments.

Trust Gifts

Charitable trusts provide an annual income to the donor or a designated beneficiary for life (or another period of time as you specify). Upon the death of the trust's beneficiary, the trust principal transfers to JFCS and becomes an endowment.

Charitable Gift Annuities

You make a gift of either cash or stock and you receive an income for life, part of which is tax free. The payout amount is based on your age.
