"Judaism has never been solely a religion to me. It’s a people, a culture, and a religion, kind of like a state of being. It helps me locate myself in the world."
What is Planned Giving?
Planned gifts are made as part of donors' overall financial or estate planning. In contrast to annual donations, or even multi-year Capital Campaign pledges, planned gifts allow donors to leave a significant and ongoing legacy with an organization that is important to them, while potentially receiving tax benefits for themselves and their families.
Leave a Legacy
A planned gift is a powerful way to have a lasting impact on the community and organization that means the most to you. Not only will a planned gift to the Boston Workmen’s Circle Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice help ensure the future and growth of our organization, it may also lessen the burden of taxes on your family and your estate. Your generosity will sustain the Jewish community you value, and will carry on your vision for progressive Jewish community, culture, ritual, and action far beyond your lifetime.
Ways to Give
With the help of a financial advisor or family member, you can include language in your will or trust specifying that a gift be made to Boston Workmen’s Circle as part of your larger estate plan.
We recommend that you work with your own financial advisor to determine what kind of planned gift is right for you. We welcome you to direct your gift to support our endowment fund, to support our socially responsible building, or to have us allocate your donation to the organization’s greatest needs.
Our sustainability depends on special gifts from long-time supporters who want to help strengthen Boston Workmen’s Circle as we move into the future. By making a planned gift to Boston Workmen’s Circle, you help ensure that, in its second century, our treasured 110-year old organization will continue to thrive.
