Legacy Society

Permanence & Stability

Your planned gift is a powerful and meaningful way to create an enduring philanthropic legacy at Beth Yeshurun.

Join the Congregation Beth Yeshurun Legacy Society!  Gifts to the Beth Yeshurun endowment are invested in perpetuity, providing a growing stream of income, which, over time, will help support the Congregation's many programs and activities.
Innovative programs, such as the Social Action, Inclusion, Jewish Learning, YES Seniors Group, 100 Jewish Men, daily minyans, live-streaming and many others, contribute to Beth Yeshurun’s effective service to its membership and the community, require considerable funding. A vibrant and growing endowment fund can ease our dependence on voluntary assessments and capital campaigns while securing the fiscal future of the Congregation, as it:

  • Creates an ongoing source of income. Because funds within the Legacy Society are permanent, this pool of money provides a reliable source of income in perpetuity.
  •  Enhances stability and prestige. Our well-managed Legacy Society and endowment fund sends a message of planned, long-tern stability, fiscal responsibility and financial viability.
  •  Provides independence. Contributions to our Legacy Society can provide a measure of independence from economic, governmental and political forces.
  • Builds a pipeline of future gifts. Our thriving Legacy Society builds a pipeline of gifts that will mature in the future. By attracting deferred gifts we are enhancing the future financial security of Beth Yeshurun by positioning ourselves to enjoy increasingly larger gifts in the future.

Making a gift to the Endowment Fund allows for orderly financial planning thereby securing Beth Yeshurun’s leadership role locally and nationally for many generations to come.
