Foundation Endowments


Your Dreams. Your passion. Your legacy.  


A Continuum of Commitment


Your commitment to Jewish Federation and the Jewish people is evident in everything you do -- ­the responsibility you take, the care you give, and the values you teach. Now you can extend your commitment. You can inspire the next generation and generations after that. You can make a connection to the future. That connection begins with your legacy.


A Legacy Lives Forever


Your charitable gift to The Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester is professionally and securely invested, along with hundreds of others, to build a safety net for the Jewish people. The annual campaign alone cannot secure the future of Jewish community. Your legacy gift will make the difference. It's commitment that lives beyond your lifetime. Returns on your investment will save Jewish lives and Jewish life into the next century and beyond.


Your choice to create a continuum of commitment carries you forward into that future. It says that for as long as there are Jews who need help, part of you will be there to give that help.


A Legacy Builds Community


Your charitable gift to The Foundation of the Jewish Federation will secure the future of your local community,­ the Jewish education of our children, the health and well-being of our aging population, and the traditional Jewish values that have helped build a strong and caring community for your family.


A Legacy Protects Israel


Your lifelong support helped turn the dream of Israel into a reality. Yet, today, even though Israel is strong, there are many challenges to overcome. Your charitable gift to The Foundation of the Jewish Federation helps ensure that the federation will be able to continue to meet these and to continue to build the Israel/Diaspora partnerships that will enhance and secure the future of all Jews, wherever they live.

Your Charitable Gift Options

Everyone has a unique family and financial situation. Your legacy gift can be designed to match your personal circumstances through a variety of options, all of which are managed on your behalf by The Foundation.


In planning your charitable gift, your legacy can provide:


•Unrestricted funds, giving your community the resources and flexibility to address issues, unanticipated needs and opportunities now and in the future.

•Restricted or designated funds, aligning with your specific area of interest or organizations, programs or needs that you feel are most important.

Every option provides unique tax and estate planning advantages and is an expression of your lifelong care and involvement,­ your enduring commitment to klal Yisrael (every Jew is responsible for the other) and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
