There are easy and tax-favored ways to provide for the future needs of our local and worldwide Jewish community. You can:
• Make a charitable bequest of any amount in your will or living trust
• Name Jewish Federation of Madison as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy
• Name Jewish Federation of Madison as a beneficiary of all or a portion of your retirement plan
• Establish a named endowment fund with $10,000 or more
• Set up a deferred or immediate charitable gift annuity with $5,000 or more
Your gift will enrich our community’s future, as well as be there to help those facing hardship here at home and around the world.
Locally, your gift will allow Jewish Federation of Madison to continue to help support the essential services provided by the Hilde L. Mosse Gan HaYeled Preschool, Camp Shalom, Jewish Social Services, the UW Hillel, Midrasha Hebrew High School, and the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Jewish Community Campus.
Internationally, your gift will help provide rescue, relief, and development programs and services to Jewish communities in need in 60 countries, including Israel, the Former Soviet Union, Latin America, and Central and Eastern Europe. A portion of your gift will also be dedicated to providing non-sectarian aid to overseas communities in times of crisis.
And depending on what type of gift you make, you may have the option of designating your funds for a specific program or purpose.
