Legacy Giving Opportunities

There are many ways to contribute without jeopardizing your family’s security or affecting your current lifestyle. While each legacy gift is tailored to individual needs, the most common gifts include.

  • Bequests: You can add The Community Synagogue as a beneficiary of your estate with a simple amendment to facilitate your bequest. 
  • Life Insurance:  You can add The Community Synagogue to an existing life insurance policy or purchase a new policy.
  • Individual Retirement Accounts: Naming The Community Synagogue as a beneficiary of your IRA may be a tax-wise gift that can avoid income tax obligations for your heirs. 
  • Charitable Gift Annuity: A Charity Gift Annuity (CGA) enables you to give charitable contributions to The Community Synagogue and receive financial benefits for yourself. Our partners at UJA-Federation manage our CGA program, and we can connect you with the experts to work with you.
