Life & Legacy Program
Beth-El Congregation’s Life & Legacy Program is a platform to steward donors and promote after-lifetime giving to benefit Beth-El Congregation or other Jewish entities in the local community. Beth-El Congregation has, to this point in time, recognized individuals and families who have included the congregation in their estate planning as Pillars of Beth-El. Through their generosity, they have planted seeds for those who will come after them, helping ensure that the congregation will remain a strong home of worship, education, and service. Life & Legacy continues and builds on the Pillars of Beth-El. A legacy gift will not only continue your financial support of the congregation but will also signify to your loved ones and the entire community the importance of the passage of values from one generation to the next.
The Life & Legacy process is very easy. You may express your plan for an after-life gift by completing a letter of intent. The letter of intent is not a legal obligation and may be changed or modified at any time at your discretion. You do not need to know the giving vehicle or amount of your legacy commitment when you complete the letter. You have up to a full year in which to formalize your intent. Beth-El Congregation’s Life & Legacy Program is being kick-started as part of a two-year-long partnership program offered by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, Jewish Federations of North America, and the Jewish Federation of Fort Worth & Tarrant County, that provides training, support, and monetary incentives to motivate organizations to secure meaningful after-lifetime legacy gifts.
