Mitzvah Fund Tribute Cards
Mitzvah Fund Tribute Cards are a wonderful way to perform a mitzvah … a good deed — actually a double mitzvah! The Mitzvah Fund Tribute Cards offer JFCS supporters an opportunity to honor family, friends, and loved ones while providing support for our programs and services. JFCS now has Mitzvah Fund Tribute Cards Envelopes available for you to have on hand, at your home or office, for quick use. These envelopes are easy to use and we encourage you to keep several for those unexpected special occasions.
Life & Legacy
JFCS’ Life & Legacy donors are people like you who want to ensure sustainability of JFCS programs and services for generations to come. Your gift will ensure that:
- The community has an organization that addresses the needs and responds to changing community, social, and economic situations through the lens of Jewish traditions
- Everyone who turns to JFCS receives high quality service and compassionate care regardless of their ability to pay
- Critical social services are available to individuals and families when unforeseen crises occur
- Individuals and families are empowered to become self-sufficient
JFCS has instituted a Planned Giving Program offering donors the opportunity to establish endowed and named funds which generate support for the capital and development needs of the organization. There can be significant tax benefits to you and your heirs through a deferred gift made to JFCS. You may want to consider naming JFCS in your will. Your tax advisor or financial planner can provide you with specific details on planned and deferred giving options.Donate
