Atid Legacy Society
The Life & Legacy Program, sponsored by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, has encouraged KHDS to focus on the longevity of our school by securing legacy gifts including endowments, life insurance and other after-lifetime gifts. We are now in Year 3 of this program and our list of Atid Legacy Society members continues to grow. Over the past 2 years KHDS has received $20,000 in unrestricted grants for achieving 50 new Letters of Intent. This year (Year #3) we must focus on the formalization process by transitioning 50% of the Letters of Intent to Confirmed Legacy Gifts.
But more importantly, making your Legacy commitment now will ensure the future of Katz Hillel Day School of Boca Raton so it can continue to provide a stellar Jewish education to our future; our children.
Your planned Legacy gift will:
- help us to continue to provide best practices in education, programming, technology, and facility so that we will always offer the very best and be attractive to new students.
- help stabilize and ultimately lower tuition costs so that more families can choose HDS for their children.
- ensure that no child, regardless of their family’s financial situation, is denied this impactful Jewish education.
Leaving a legacy is simple. Some options include:
- Bequest in a will
- Gift of Life Insurance
- Gift of IRA or Pension Funds
- Gift of cash or assets
- Lifetime Income Vehicle
Did you know that leaving a legacy can be as easy as designating the school as a beneficiary in your retirement plan or IRA? You can do this online or by filling out your plan’s beneficiary form. Simple as that! Other easy ways to make a legacy gift include naming us in your life insurance policy, through a Charitable Gift Annuity or Remainder Trust, or a bequest in your will. Any percentage or dollar amount qualifies!
We are also offering free confidential consultations and services, which include a last will and testament, codicil and/or trust amendment and other useful guidance about planning your legacy, thanks to the donation of pro bono services by Dvora Weinreb (Scher), Esq., KHDS parent and Board member. Please contact the Development Office if you would like to set up a time to speak with Dvora.
Becoming our partner in ensuring the Jewish future, will not only make a huge difference in the lives of so many, it is the most powerful statement you can make to your family and your community about what you truly value.
Contact the Development Office for more information on making your legacy gift or speak to your financial advisor about including KHDS in your planned giving.
