We hope these resources help you achieve your financial goals as you seek to provide for your loved ones and support the lifesaving work of The Fellowship, following the biblical commandment “to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe him” (Isaiah 58:7).

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.
You can make a gift to The Fellowship from your financial accounts, retirement plans or life insurance plans. This can be done outside of a will or trust and is one of the easiest ways to leave a legacy (be sure, however, to coordinate this type of gift with your overall estate planning strategy.)
Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity is a gift that gives back to you! It is created when you give assets to The Fellowship in exchange for a guaranteed, fixed payment, which is made to you or another beneficiary you’ve specified. A charitable gift annuity can be established with as little as $5,000 for donors who are at least 65 years of age. With most charitable gift annuities, payments begin immediately, but you may also consider a deferred charitable gift annuity—an arrangement in which payments begin at a later date.
IRA Charitable Rollovers
The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals 70½ or older to make a tax-free rollover using funds transferred directly from an IRA to charity. This means you can donate up to $100,000 from your IRA without having to count the distribution as taxable income.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust can be used to help you make a gift to The Fellowship while also providing you with a charitable deduction, income for life or for a period of years, and reduction or elimination of capital gains and estate taxes.
Do you have real estate such as a home, vacation home, or business real estate that you would like to pass on to The Fellowship? A gift of real estate can be made during your lifetime, or by bequest through your will or trust.
