A Lasting Jewish Impact is within Your Reach
What is Legacy Giving?
Legacy Giving is when you include WRJC in your financial plans so that a portion of your estate benefits our Congregation upon your passing. We do not receive any money until that time.
I'm not wealthy, are legacy gifts right for me?
Your participation is possible, no matter what your income or estate value. A legacy gift has no impact on your current finances or lifestyle. The gift is effective upon the distribution of your estate.
How do I become Legacy Society member?
Leaving a legacy is simple, and there are many options. Consider naming WRJC as a beneficiary for a set figure or percentage of your will, life insurance policy, IRA or pension funds, cash or assets.
Once you do, you will be a member of our Legacy Society, a special group that is celebrated and publicly acknowledged for your lasting commitment to WRJC.
If you are interested in making a legacy gift, or have already included WRJC in your plans, please call Eryn Alvey, our Administrative Director, at 208 726 1183 to discuss your options.
Message from Judith Teller Kaye
Legacy Society member
The Wood River Jewish Community was founded over 45 years ago. And I expect that it will continue to provide spiritual and community services to our Congregation for the next 45 years. Long after I expect to be on this earth.
David and I have included WRJC in our estate plans. Why? Because having a Jewish presence in the Wood River Valley is important to us. Because we know that financial stability is important to a congregation.
The concept of "L'Dor v'Dor" . . . from generation to generation . . . is one that I take to heart. Prior generations have insured that we have a strong Jewish community in our valley. It gives me great pleasure to think that, after our deaths, David and I will be able to help keep the legacy of past generations alive.
