Be Remembered. . . . An Endowment Is Forever.
A planned gift to Congregation Shaare Emeth enables you to be present forever. Whether your legacy is within the Shirlee Green Preschool, Religious School or to maintain the operations of our beautiful congregation, no matter where or when in the future, you can be there to help. It just requires planning. With even a small initial gift, you can create a permanent legacy using planned giving programs that are specifically tailored to help support your financial planning and estate planning goals and to fit within your means. Planned giving offers many benefits. If your estate is subject to taxes, a gift made at death will provide a tax deduction. Perhaps most important is the enduring nature of planned giving—you may use the fund to honor or remember a loved one, perpetuating your family name long beyond your lifetime. It’s up to you how a fund can be used.
You don’t have to be wealthy to help our congregation.
A charitable bequest provides a gift through your will; a life-income plan provides payments to you at regular intervals throughout your lifetime; an endowment provides a permanent source of present and future income for Shaare Emeth.
There are a number of options available; any of them will allow you to create a legacy that provides for future generations while making sure that you and your loved ones are able to reap significant benefits.
You can begin today. . . . Your commitment to Congregation Shaare Emeth will secure our future. By giving, you are teaching important values of leadership and responsibility to your family, friends, and congregation. Your gift will allow us to be there whenever help is needed. . . . Today, throughout your lifetime, and for generations to come.
