Endowment Fund Incentive Match

Imagine a legacy gift that will help secure Omaha’s Jewish community for future generations.

We are offering this wonderful opportunity that will benefit the Omaha Jewish community for years to come, and you can play a significant role. Time and matching funds are limited so now is your chance to make an even bigger impact with your gift.

Consider these two options to establish or add to:


Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE) or Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) funds are permanent funds dedicated to endowing your Jewish Federation of Omaha Annual Campaign gift. PACE and LOJE funds are not intended to take the place of any current annual gifts. Instead they serve as a lasting legacy that will continue to make an annual gift to the campaign in perpetuity on your behalf.


Establish or add to an existing endowment to help pay costs to repair, replace or renovate the newly renovated JCC. With your help, we will be able to maintain the freshly renovated Staenberg Omaha JCC, keeping our facilities looking like new for years to come.

Between now and December 31, 2022, the Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation will match endowment gifts for these two specific options. Make a lasting impact on the Jewish community! The match will be 20% of each gift up to a maximum of $20,000 per gift.



  • Establish or add to an existing PACE or LOJE fund and the Foundation will add an extra 20%, up to $20,000 into the endowment fund.
  • Make a gift to establish or add to an existing endowment with the specific purpose of maintaining, repairing and renovating the JCC facilities, fixtures and equipment, and the Foundation will add an extra 20%, up to $20,000, into your endowment fund.
  • Matching funds will be deposited into the endowment fund designated.
  • Your charitable donation must be received before December 31, 2022.
