Good together.


What Will Your Legacy Be?

As the world's largest local philanthropy, we translate values into impact. Your planned gift to UJA-Federation of New York helps shape our Jewish future through timeless tradition and forward thinking, beyond what any of us could ever achieve alone. Together, we can build a better world.

Through your support, we care for Jews everywhere and New Yorkers of all backgrounds, connect people to their Jewish communities, and respond to crises close to home and around the globe. Our impact stretches from New York to Israel to more than 70 countries around the world. We help:

  • A Holocaust survivor in New York receive a warm bowl of soup at a local community center.
  • An Ethiopian Jew who has recently immigrated to Israel learn new job skills to better support his family.
  • A teen embark on his first trip to Israel and connect with other Jews.
  • A child with autism feel welcome and included in her synagogue community.

And so much more. With our reach and your lasting support, YOU+UJA can do almost anything. Your planned gift will make a world of difference.

What Is Planned Giving?

A planned gift is a charitable gift that you decide to make as part of your philanthropic or estate plans. In addition to benefitting UJA-Federation and our community, a planned gift can benefit you and loved ones. It also stands as a lasting reminder to your children and succeeding generations of the values that are most important to you.

Planned giving offers various giving vehicles. If you give during your lifetime, you may receive charitable income tax deductions. You can also create a fund to honor or remember a loved one, perpetuating your family name long beyond your lifetime. One option is to structure your gift to provide your Jewish community with a contribution that can ensure that the community receives a gift on your behalf every year, through your lifetime and beyond.

You designate how your gift is to be used: to provide unrestricted funds to help meet community needs now and in the future, or to provide permanent resources to aid identified initiatives that are of particular interest to you and your family. It's up to you.
