QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER
It’s easy to do. Reflect on your Jewish passions. What is important to you about our faith and people? What work in our community do you want to support? Then contact the team leader from the organization or organizations you want to work with:
- Your congregation
- A community organization or agency
- A school
- The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
The answer is different for everyone. Some people make a will after the birth of a child; others may wait until they receive an inheritance. Whether you already have a will or are just getting started, it’s always right to think of how you want to be remembered. Now is the time.
We encourage you to begin your legacy conversation by contacting the team leader of the organization you care about most to share your interests and learn about the organization’s specific needs. The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Pittsburgh’s staff is available to assist you with the technical aspects of legacy giving. You may also want to contact your financial advisors and/or estate planning attorney at this time.
