Just One Percent

Experts forecast that approximately $40 trillion will change generational hands over the next fifty years, making it the greatest transfer of wealth in history. CESJDS is looking to the future and keeping this in mind as we build on our strong foundation of providing an education grounded in tradition and bursting with innovation.

One way that you can help is through a planned gift, which costs you nothing today. You can make a planned gift in a variety of ways, and many of the options are simple to establish.

For example, you can make a gift through your will, trust, IRA, or life insurance policy of just one percent of your assets to ensure the future of our community, leaving 99% to take care of your family. This type of planned gift is often more substantial than what you could comfortably contribute in any given year during your lifetime.

We would love to speak with you about how you can make a transformational impact on quality Jewish education with just one percent

Thank you for your vote of confidence in the future of CESJDS.

For more information, or for a confidential conversation about your gift commitment (as many or few details as you wish) please contact Sharon Metro, Director of Development, at smetro@cesjds.org or (301) 692-4861.

Please consult your professional advisors before making any gift. CESJDS is not engaged in providing legal or tax advice.
