Wills and Living Trusts

You may have a desire to help the Jewish people with gifts, but are also concerned that you may need certain assets during your lifetime—to cover future living expenses or health care costs, for example. You can retain ownership and use of assets during life and still benefit The Fellowship by leaving the assets to us through a charitable bequest.

A bequest may be conveyed through a will or a trust (most commonly in the form of a "revocable living trust.") An existing will or trust does not need to be re-written to include a charitable bequest—you often can add a "codicil" or amendment to your current estate plan.

Here is an example of how some donors have included The Fellowship in their will or trust (Please consult with your personal advisor for information on how to best plan your own bequest.)

"I give to the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, EIN #36-3256096, 30 North LaSalle Street, Suite 4300, Chicago, Illinois 60602, …

  • The sum of $_______
  • ______________________ (description of specific property)
  •  ____% of my estate owned by me at my death.
  • The rest, residuary and remainder of my estate

… for its unrestricted use and benefit in furthering its mission of building bridges of cooperation between Christians and Jews."
