Susan Voight created a legacy for her synagogue, Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel.
“I am excited to leave a two-fold legacy. My greatest legacy is having 3 children and now 7 grandchildren. As the daughter of Holocaust survivors, I can say, ‘We live on! We thrive!’ My second legacy is to my shul, Congregation Beth El–Keser Israel. I created a legacy for BEKI in my estate plans so that it can continue to be a place for families to learn and grow.”
Be forever remembered by our community for the legacy you leave.
Make YOUR legacy a brighter Jewish tomorrow.

Open a donor-advised fund with the Jewish Foundation.
Think of a donor-advised fund as your charitable bank account. When you contribute cash or securities to your DAF, you are eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Those funds can be invested for tax-free growth, and you can recommend grants to any IRS-qualified public charity over time.
1. Establish a special charitable fund in your name with the Jewish Foundation.
2. Contribute cash or appreciated securities.
3. Foundation sells the assets and credits your fund with the sale proceeds.
4. You receive a tax receipt for charitable deduction purposes—no capital gains taxes are payable.
5. The proceeds are invested and continue to work for you, tax free.
6. Request distribution to qualified charities—at your convenience.
