1.What constitutes ‘legacy giving’?
Legacy giving typically includes Bequests, life insurance policies, IRAs, real estate, cash, stocks, and a percentage of the estate.

  • Wills, Bequests, and Living Trusts are the most popular types of legacy giving. In their wills, donors will name what they wish to give/leave Shurat HaDin- funds, stocks, a piece of art, etc. Donors may also give Shurat HaDin a property they own (real estate) while retaining the right to use it during their lifetime.
  • Beneficiary Gifts Through Insurances (for example, in a life insurance policy). Naming Shurat HaDin as a (primary/contingent) beneficiary is a simple and powerful way to support our work without updating your will. 
  • Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) are tax-deferred retirement plans. Donors can name Shurat HaDin as a beneficiary or recipient of a percentage of the proceeds.

This way, you can rest assured that your legacy will be preserved as you want.
