Giving Wisely

Our community relies on charitable gifts to meet its daily needs and to support its future. The Jewish Foundation of GNH takes our responsibility to be a good steward of the money entrusted to us seriously and apply those dollars wisely and with purpose to our community’s needs.

Your gift can take multiple forms and can help you address your personal financial goals. Do you want to make a significant gift during your lifetime, or would a gift as part of your estate work better? Do you have a particular asset that you are thinking of donating? Do you want to increase your retirement income, or is your primary goal estate preservation? Are you carrying excess life insurance or a large balance in your retirement plan?

We will be pleased to work with you and your advisors to help you craft the gift plan that works best for your goals and dreams. Here are some places to start as you consider your options:
