Leaving a Legacy


Leaving a Legacy Lasts Forever.

Leaving a legacy gift to your Jewish Federation of Ocean County can transform your Jewish community.

Charitable giving is not only for the wealthy.  All gifts are important, whether they are large or small and help us address the needs of our community.

Leaving a gift to charity in your will significantly reduces the estate tax burden on your heirs, your children and relatives, depending on the current tax laws. You should consult with a financial adviser or attorney to learn how charitable giving may actually benefit your family after you’re gone.

There are several ways to leave a legacy:

  • Direct a bequest from your will or trust either generally, or specifically to your Jewish Federation of Ocean County.
  • Name the Jewish Federation of Ocean County as a beneficiary of property such as a bank account, life insurance policy, or retirement plan.

To discuss your options further, please call Drew Staffenberg, Executive Director at 732-363-0530 ext. 3.
