Legacy Giving

Make a Lasting Impact

Many of our supporters have included us in their wills or honored us with another type of legacy gift. Their foresight strengthens and helps ensure the future of the San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living.

Gift Planning offers you the opportunity to use financial, estate, investment, and other charitable options to help meet your current philanthropic goals and extend your generosity well into the future. A planned gift also can protect your assets, provide for your family, and guarantee you income for life.

Simply designate SFCJL as one of your beneficiaries in a document separate from your will. Our easy-to-use software will help guide you through the process! It’s also flexible—you aren’t locked into the choices you make today. You can review and adjust beneficiary designations any time.

Charitable Gift Annuities

When you establish a charitable gift annuity to benefit San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living, your gift will provide you with an attractive fixed rate of return and tax benefits. There are two types of gift annuities: With immediate CGAs, payments begin immediately. With a deferred CGA, payments begin on a specific date in the future. The longer the deferral, the higher your annuity rate. It’s an easy way to benefit from a tax deduction while knowing your gift is also helping seniors lives their best lives.
