Create a Jewish Legacy

Planned Giving

Book of Life

The Endowment Book of Life honors those who have made a present or future commitment of $10,000 or more to the permanent endowment of a local Jewish organization or synagogue. The Endowment Book of Life is a beautifully designed book on permanent display at the Jewish Community Campus, and is inscribed with each donor's photo and personal story of commitment and motivation. This inspirational book reflects our people's proud philanthropic traditions: a promise from one generation to the next that the values of our Jewish heritage will be preserved and that community resources will be available for future generations.

Donors recognized in the Book of Life have named the Jewish Community Foundation or a local organization or synagogue as the beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest, appreciated securities, gifts of retirement accounts, gifts of life insurance and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts.

If you have made a planned gift, please fill out our member profile form or contact Josh Stein at 913.327.8121 so we may recognize your generosity by including you in the Book of Life.
