Sholom Foundation Heritage Society

The Sholom Foundation Heritage Society was created to honor and recognize the many thoughtful and visionary friends who have included Sholom Foundation in their estate plans. For nearly 100 years, Sholom has made a considerable and meaningful impact on the entire community.

As a member of the Sholom Foundation Heritage Society, you are choosing to perpetuate a caring, comfortable and dignified environment for your elderly loved ones in a nurturing Jewish atmosphere.

Through your deferred gift, you will leave a legacy that will impact generations well into the future and long after you are gone.

Become a Heritage Society member through:

* a simple bequest in your will to Sholom Foundation-regardless of size;

* naming Sholom Foundation a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, IRA or pension fund; or,

* funding a charitable trust

Several deferred giving options, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust, can give you a reliable income stream at favorable rates and tax benefits for as long as you live, along with the knowledge that Sholom will receive the balance of this asset upon your death.

Hopefully, as each of us reaches an age at which we may require Sholom's services; there will continue to be the programs and facilities of the Sholom Community Alliance to respond to our needs. I encourage those who have already made a provision for Sholom Foundation in their estate plan to let the Foundation know so we can honor you with membership in the Sholom Foundation Heritage Society. And I hope that many more in our community will join our visionary donors by including Sholom Foundation in their estate plans.
