Federation's Legacy Society


The Legacy Society is made up of donors who, with generous foresight, have established a legacy gift to help ensure Jewish continuity from generation to generation.


By giving form and substance to their dreams, each in his or her own way, these donors are enabling our community to meet the challenges of the future with Jewish values and traditions that are unshakable and deeply instilled.


The same charitable act you perform to provide for your Jewish community this year can ensure that the community receives a gift on your behalf every year, through your lifetime and beyond.


It's easy to leave a legacy! Click here.



First, reflect on your priorities and what is important to you. You may want to endow your gift to the Federation Annual Campaign, or fund your favorite program so it can continue indefinitely.


A legacy gift to Federation can be directed to strengthen the State of Israel, build Jewish community here in San Diego, or help Jews in need, anywhere in the world. You decide.




You do not have to be wealthy to have an estate or to leave a legacy. No matter what your income or estate value is, your gift is important.



In partnership with the Jewish Community Foundation, we will work with you and your professional advisors to plan a gift that furthers your unique financial and charitable goals. We are available to meet and consult with you and your advisors throughout the process.

"In remembrance there is life."

~ Laurie Gross


We'd love to answer any questions you have about your Jewish legacy!

The Jewish Federation of San Diego County Legacy Society honors those individuals and families who have made a gift to the Federation through their wills and estate plans. Membership in our Legacy Society is a unique opportunity to enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you've created a Jewish Legacy. We honor the generous community members listed here who have made a real and lasting impact on our community.
