What will your legacy be?

The Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation has a stated mission to help assure the stability and continuity of Jewish life and to support communal services in the Omaha area.  When you support the Foundation, your gift will help assure that the Foundation accumulates enduring assets to permanently fund Omaha’s Jewish community.  Your gift to the Foundation will ensure a sound financial future for Omaha’s Jewish community, while giving you the opportunity to achieve your personal philanthropic goals.  Your gift is always welcome and appreciated.

Federal tax laws encourage charitable giving.  For example, charitable gifts of appreciated publicly traded securities may enable you to satisfy your philanthropic goals without paying capital gains taxes.  Designating the Foundation as an after-lifetime beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement plans may result in substantial income tax and estate tax savings for your family. We encourage you to consult your tax and legal advisors for specific tax and legal advice, and please know that we are most willing to work with you and your professional advisor when you do your financial, estate, philanthropic and tax planning.  

Whether you are adding to your existing fund at the Foundation or 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.
