If you are thinking about how to continue supporting the causes you are passionate about after your lifetime, this short video about endowments from the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation is helpful in explaining one strategy for creating a planned gift that can have lasting impact.
Gifts that have a last impact are especially consistent with the work of the Dallas Hebrew Free Loan Association. The Dallas Hebrew Free Loan Association is unique among organizations in that contributed dollars live on in perpetuity.
As our no interest loans made possible through gifts are repaid, the funds are lent out again and again, continuing to make a difference in so many people’s lives. Since funds are recycled, donations have a lasting impact, which is what we all hope to do in some way with our work in the community and charitable giving.
For more information, visit our Donate page and use the “Create a Legacy” Intent Form to get started on your Jewish community endowment.
