Federation’s Legacy Society is made up of donors who, with generous foresight, have established a legacy gift to help ensure Jewish continuity from generation to generation.

By giving form and substance to their dreams, each in his or her own way, these donors are enabling our community to meet the challenges of the future with Jewish values and traditions that are unshakable and deeply instilled.

The same charitable act you perform to provide for your Jewish community this year can ensure that the community receives a gift on your behalf every year, through your lifetime and beyond.

How do I begin?

First, reflect on your priorities and what is important to you. You may want to endow your gift to the Federation Annual Campaign or fund your favorite program so it can continue indefinitely.

A legacy gift to Federation can be directed to strengthen the State of Israel, build Jewish community here in Greater Hartford or help Jews in need, anywhere in the world. You decide.

I’m not wealthy. Are legacy gifts right for me?

You do not have to be wealthy to have an estate or to leave a legacy. No matter what your income or estate value is, your gift is important.  

Can the Federation work with my financial advisors?

In partnership with the Jewish Community Foundation, we will work with you and your professional advisors to plan a gift that furthers your unique financial and charitable goals. We are available to meet and consult with you and your advisors throughout the process.
