We are delighted to let you know we now have over 80 members of the Legacy Society — people who have committed to an afterlife gift to Kehilla. The total value of these commitments is over $1.6 million dollars. These are contributions that will come in over time, helping to grow Kehilla’s endowment when we are no longer here.
We’d love to have you join us in helping to secure Kehilla’s future for generations to come. You don’t have to be wealthy to leave a legacy to Kehilla – in fact, this is a way to give Kehilla money when you can’t use it anymore. There are lots of ways to do this; some are as simple as naming Kehilla as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) or other retirement savings fund. That takes only a few minutes, and often can be done online. Another way is to designate Kehilla as one of the beneficiaries of your life insurance policy. Even your bank account has a place for you to designate who should get your savings when you die.
If you have a trust or will, you can add Kehilla as a beneficiary of your estate through those documents. You can specify an amount, or you can specify a percentage of your estate. You can even specify that Kehilla gets money only after your children do.
