Legacy / Planned Giving

Create your own Legacy with Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey.

For more than 100 years, Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey (JFS) has helped people in our community and worked to make a difference in their lives. You can help sustain the crucial work of JFS long into the future.

Our Legacy Donors are individuals just like you who want to guarantee there is always a place in Central New Jersey, inspired by Jewish values, that strengthens individuals and families, and provides support to people in crisis.

By leaving a legacy, they have demonstrated their commitment to the well-being of the community for future generations. Please Join Them!

Legacy gifts give you the opportunity to do something meaningful for the future of JFS without affecting your lifestyle today. Some even pay you income during your lifetime with the remainder going to JFS and other charities you may designate. Examples of Legacy Giving include:

  • Putting a bequest in your Will
  • Naming JFS as the beneficiary of a retirement account, such as an IRA or 401(k), or a Life Insurance policy
  • Gifting Real Estate
  • Establishing a Charitable Gift Annuity or Charitable Remainder Trust

JFS of Central NJ is proud to be 1 of only 15 organizations selected to partner with the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest in this special program to help us secure our future. We look forward to talking with you about it.

If you have a specific type of donation you would like to make, please contact Tom Beck, Executive Director via e-mail or telephone 908.352.8375 to discuss further.
