It Starts With a Promise—The Endowment Book of Life
Just as the Jewish Federation is an assurance to so many people in Tucson and around the world, the Endowment Book of Life is a promise to help ensure the vitality and future of our local, national, and global communities.
By signing our community’s Endowment Book of Life held at the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona, you are stating that at some point in your life you will take the time to create your own legacy plan. The focus is on ensuring YOUR dreams, YOUR passions, and what YOU care about for future generations.
Since its inception in 1991, more than 700 individuals from all socio-economic levels and with varied interests have signed the Endowment Book of Life and have made this commitment. The only requirement is a strong desire to give back to your community.
A legacy plan is a formal document stating how you want your promise to be realized – which organizations, institutions or causes are important to you and how you want to help them. As a supporter and friend of the Jewish Federation, you have an opportunity to strengthen our mission and secure our financial future by contributing directly to one of our already established endowment funds held at the Jewish Community Foundation or by including us in your legacy plan. Through a legacy plan held at the Jewish Community Foundation, you may create a personal endowment fund that supports us and may also include the other organizations and causes you care about year after year. The legacy experts at the Jewish Community Foundation are available to guide you in identifying what is meaningful to you throughout your life and to help you support organizations and causes like the Jewish Federation that reflect your values, passions and ideals either during your lifetime or after you are gone.
Begin your legacy today and ensure a stronger Federation and more vibrant Jewish and global communities for tomorrow.
