L’dor V’dor: From Generation to Generation

Jewish Family Service exists to fulfill one of the most important Jewish values, that of Tikkun Olam, the obligation to make the world a better place. With this value as a guide, JFS ensures a future where families are strong, children are safe, and our seniors are cared for and not alone.

Ensuring JFS’s Future

Live On and Life & Legacy logosYour commitment to JFS can last beyond your lifetime with a legacy gift that ensures that the agency will continue to serve our community for generations to come. Remembering JFS in your will, trust, or retirement plan is the most personal of gifts and one that will continue to deliver the values that are important to you long after you’re gone.

You will ensure that children and families experiencing hunger will have access to fresh and nutritious food and those facing homelessness can stay in their homes. You will help people in trauma to access quality mental health care, and those with barriers to employment to find work. You will help ensure that older adults receive the care and support they need and deserve.

As a supporter of JFS, you have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the agency and its mission to enhance the well-being of those in need. You can take that commitment to the next level with your legacy gift, which will help ensure a strong future for our community. You will pass the torch from one generation to the next, making our world a better place for all—today and tomorrow.
