What is a New Century Fund legacy gift?
A legacy or planned gift can have a significant and lasting impact on the Jewish community through Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, in some cases gaining financial and tax benefits for you and your family.
A legacy gift reflects your values and desires by building an endowment* or contributing to an endowment to provide an ongoing gift in your name to the UJA Annual campaign every year.
A legacy gift is something you set up today and, in most cases, is only realized in the future.**
A legacy gift, for most donors, is paid out in the FUTURE. Yet, you will be recognized and celebrated for it TODAY, in most cases without reducing any of the funds that are available to you during your lifetime.
*Endowment is a donation of funds to a non-profit organization [Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ] structured so that the principal value is kept intact, while the investment income is available for use each year for a specific purpose [UJA Annual campaign].
**There are cases where the donor prefers to pay their legacy gift in cash during their lifetime. This is called a “Living NCF gift.”
