Why Support the JCC with a Legacy Gift?

At the JCC, we are comprised of individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds who choose to be embraced by a bond built upon Jewish values that we all have a hand in helping to nurture and shape.

No matter what initially brings people through our doors, we connect to each other, build enduring bonds and foster Jewish identity. We share our lives, celebrate milestones, and watch generations of children grow. We provide a helping hand, and we look out for people’s wellness to help them preserve their dignity and independence.  We always want to better serve, understand and relate to each other.  Like extended family, we celebrate together, we support each other through life’s challenges, and we create memories together.  We truly embody our central value that we should love our neighbors as ourselves.

Our legacy donors are people just like you who want a vibrant, thriving center of Jewish life that welcomes and embraces all who enter and will enhance the lives of future generations of people throughout the entire community.

Your Legacy gift will ensure that every person who enters the JCC will think to themselves, “This is where I belong!”

The Life & Legacy Program provides ongoing appreciation and acknowledgement of people who have named the JCC as a recipient in their estate plan. Additional benefits include recognition in JCC publications and on the JCC website, invitations to special events, and knowing that lasting gifts are important part of sustaining the future of the JCC. 


Ensuring our legacy from generation to generation

Endowment funds help provide funding for the JCC and its programs or services in perpetuity. The JCC invites the support of individuals who respect our work, care deeply about the future of our community and are passionate that this commitment endures over time.

Many donors establish endowment funds to honor the memory of a loved one; others choose to establish an endowment during their lifetime so that they can see the results of their generosity. There are many ways to make an endowment gift. Options include an outright contribution, a multi-year pledge, a gift of securities or a bequest.

The JCC offers a number of named tributes to recognize endowment gifts. Please contact Fara Marcus at 412-339-5413 or [email protected] with any questions about making an endowment gift today.
