The 1867 Society

In June 2014, the Jewish Community Foundation of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation embarked on Create a Jewish Legacy, a two year project funded through the generosity of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and four generous local donors. The goal of this project is to build capacity in our Jewish community to grow and sustain agency endowments through legacy gifts which will ensure a strong, vibrant community now and in the future.

Create a Jewish Legacy educates the community that all of us -- regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation -- have the ability to make a difference for future generations.

JFS formed The 1867 Society to recognize those individuals and families who have already acknowledged a gift to JFS in their estate plans and to welcome those who make a commitment to create an endowment to benefit the programs and services offered by JFS. Through a bequest or a beneficiary designation on an insurance plan or IRA, individuals who have cared about JFS and our clients can continue to do so for many years to come.

For more information, please call Cindy Kazan, Interim Vice President of Development & Communications at 414-225-1336 or email her at ckazan@jfsmilw.org

You can make a difference.
