Legacy Gifts make a huge impact on the long-term sustainability and financial health of the OFJCC. Pomegranate Legacy Society members make generous provisions for the OFJCC through their wills or estate plans, retirement accounts or through other planned giving methods.
For many people, this forward-looking philanthropy makes it possible to make a significant long-term contribution that otherwise might be beyond reach. With appreciation for this generous gift, members of the OFJCC Legacy Society will receive:
- A Pomegranate Mezuzah commemorating your decision to make a legacy gift to the OFJCC
- Recognition in the OFJCC's Annual Report and other publications as a Legacy Society member
- An invitation to an exclusive Annual Event specifically for Pomegranate Legacy Society members
Making a Planned Gift to the OFJCC
Bequests are one of the easiest ways for donors to make a significant contribution toward helping the OFJCC fulfill its goals. Bequests allow donors to designate future assets to the OFJCC in their wills. Donors may include the OFJCC in their estate plan by specifying a dollar amount or a percentage of their estate's assets to be transferred to the OFJCC.
Another easy option for donors is to designate the OFJCC as a beneficiary of his or her IRA, Keogh or other retirement plan. This option may allow donors to reduce both income and estate taxes.
Life Insurance Policy:
This is a relatively simple and inexpensive way for donors to provide for future generations by naming the OFJCC as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy or by donating a unneeded policy.
