Make an endowment a family tradition for future generations to ensure that Jewish history and values are not forgotten.
Studies have found that philanthropic giving has health benefits including life satisfaction, better intra-family relations, and positive effects on physical health. If you equate net worth with dollar signs only, you may be missing out on other kinds of measuring devices, such as human, intellectual, and spiritual capital. They are important tools to understanding your family’s or your individual net worth.
The Endowment began to adopt these concepts and believe in the notion of “friend-raising”, not fundraising. Begin and endowment as a mission to help you realize how your values can be the bottom line of your legacy.

Kinds of Gifts
Cash gifts can be used to set up a Donor Advised or Designated Fund, or any planned giving program. IRS rules for cash, checks or any monetary gift require that the donor provide a bank record or a written communication from the Foundation.
Listing the Endowment in your will is considered a charitable bequest. You can include the Foundation for a percentage of the estate, a specific amount, or by specific assets of stock or real estate.
