Legacy Gifts

Make a gift to future generations.

You’ve spent a lifetime helping people. Creating a legacy gift will ensure that such help will continue when you are no longer here, yet it won’t impact your current financial situation.

The simplest way to make a legacy gift is to name JCA in your will, life insurance policy or retirement plan. Here is a codicil that you might discuss with your attorney:

I bequeath the sum of _________ dollars [OR all of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate OR an amount equal to _____ percent of the net value of my estate] to the Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington, Inc., Federal Tax ID 52-0983740, a charity that has its headquarters office in Rockville, Maryland. It is my intent that this bequest be used for the area of greatest need at the time it is received [OR specify a specific purpose that you have discussed with JCA].

JCA promises to be a good steward of the funds you entrust to us. We also will be forever grateful!
