2015 Annual Report

The stock market continues its volatility, and even in these uncertain economic times, many securities are trading at prices much higher than a few years ago, having appreciated substantially. Charitable gifts of appreciated publicly traded securities may enable you to satisfy your philanthropic goals without paying capital gains tax.*

Your gift is always welcome and appreciated. Should you wish to consider adding to your existing fund at the Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation, or even consider establishing a new fund to meet your current and long-term philanthropic goals, our entire Foundation staff is ready, willing and able to assist you, and we welcome your call. My direct line is 402-334-6466.

*Consult your tax and legal advisors for specific tax and legal advice.

We've created this easy-to-understand website to help you find the gift that's right for you. Here you can learn how to plan a gift to the Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation. We'll tell you about creative giving strategies that enhance your, and your family's, well-being and help us as well.
