Planned Giving and Endowments
Planned giving affords you the unique opportunity to provide additional support to your loved ones – by increasing your spendable income, by easing your tax burden, by avoiding unnecessary depletions on your estate — while reaffirming your commitment to Jewish continuity. Planned giving is more than a donation, it is a partnership. It is the B’nai B’rith Foundation of the U.S. working with you to guarantee a Jewish future. It is B’nai B’rith’s development staff working with you to find the mode of planned giving that best suits you. B’nai B’rith’s planned giving program offers a variety of options tailored to meet your individual needs and philanthropic objectives. We can help you find the best giving alternative for you.
The 1843 Society
When you notify us that you have provided for B’nai B’rith in your will or trust, or have arranged for any other type of planned gift, you will automatically be enrolled in our esteemed 1843 Society.
Named to commemorate the year in which B’nai B’rith was founded, the Society was created to acknowledge the importance of bequests and planned gifts from members and supporters who believe in B’nai B’rith and its mission.
You will receive a framed membership certificate and your name will be permanently inscribed on The 1843 Society’s membership roster.
B’nai B’rith’s policy regarding bequests is that all information concerning donors, members and friends of B’nai B’rith is handled through the Planned Giving office in Washington, D.C. This includes bequests that are designated for a local lodge, unit, council, region, or other sub-group of B’nai B’rith.
Please forward all correspondence, emails, phone calls, receipts, releases and distribution checks related to estates, trusts, and other planned gifts to:
B’nai B’rith Planned Giving Office
