Make a Charitable Bequest in Your Will

A bequest is a smart way to make a gift. By designating a specific sum or a percentage of your estate, you can make a major difference, even if you can’t commit any assets today. Your bequest to the Seattle Jewish Community Endowment Fund will help shape the future of the Jewish community.

Retirement Accounts

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension, or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to the Jewish Federation. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets. Your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.

Charitable Trusts and Annuity Products

Through Charitable Remainder Trusts and Charitable Gift Annuities, you can generate income today while leaving a legacy gift for tomorrow.
