Gone, but Not Forgotten
It is quite natural to desire that our lives continue to count for good after we are gone. We don’t want our values and influence to evaporate into thin air.
One of the reasons parents and grandparents seek to instill their values into the younger generation is so their influence will stretch into the future through these family members to help shape the world of tomorrow.
The Columbus Jewish Foundation is preparing for the future because we will be around, doing what we do, for generations to come. For the community and agency/synagogue network of service providers, perpetuating the same values you now appreciate and support.
And that is why so many of our friends, supporters, and neighbors have established endowment funds with the Foundation. They want their names and some of their resources attached to the causes that will reflect their values to future generations.
Your own named endowment fund will be here long after you are gone … and will ensure that you will not be forgotten!
Endowment funds may be established to provide perpetual support for your favorite charities and interest areas that improve and repair the world. You can create an endowment now and add to it with an estate gift or make arrangements to establish one through your will. You can name a fund after yourself or in honor of a loved one. You can add to an existing fund or create multiple funds. There are many possibilities.
