The Book of Life

The Legacies Book of Life contains promises made to our generation to the next that a strong and vibrant Jewish Community will be here for us, for our children and for our children’s children.

The Legacies Book of Life is a permanent communal record which has inscribed the names of those donors who have made or promised to make an endowment gift through the Foundation for Jewish Philanthropies. Endowment gifts may be made during your lifetime or through your estate, and may be designated to benefit your favorite charitable organizations, community agencies, temples or synagogues.

An Endowment Gift is a gift to the future. Contributed funds are not spent for current needs, but are invested as a permanent endowment.

The income generated is used year after year for charitable purposes specified by the donor. When you make an endowment gift, you create a lasting legacy to insure the perpetuation of our Jewish heritage, our values and our tradition of caring for one another.

To join the growing group of donors who have entered their names in the Legacies Book of Life, contact the Foundation for Jewish Philanthropies at 716 204-1133.
