Establish an Endowment Fund

Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment

Creating a Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment ensures that your current gift to the annual campaign will last in perpetuity. A PACE is a wonderful way to leave a lasting reminder to your children and succeeding generations of the values that are most important to you.

"If our generation embraces legacy giving, think about the impact we can have on the next generation."

Lion of Judah Endowment

Establishing a Lion of Judah Endowment allows you to provide an annual gift in your name in perpetuity to Women's Philanthropy of UJA-Federation. There are 3,600 women worldwide who proudly attach the Or L'Atid flame to their Lion pins, letting everyone know they have endowed their gifts and are keepers of the flame.

"Jewish tradition asks us to give to charity. My LOJE with UJA-Federation is a perpetual act of that tzedakah."

-Candice Koerner

"Federation is part of my DNA. From childhood I traveled with my mom on missions and saw first-hand Federation's impact. By endowing my gift, I show my commitment for generations to come and provide an example for my daughter as my mother did for me."

-Alisa Mall

"My UJA involvement has enhanced my life so much. Endowing my Lion gift gave me the opportunity to perpetuate a legacy of caring. By creating an endowment for my daughter Lisa she will have her own legacy and a forever bond with UJA—L'Dor V'Dor."

-Mindy Richenstein

Thematic Endowment Funds

Create an everlasting gift by establishing a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE), Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE), or Thematic Endowment Fund. These endowments help ensure the success of UJA-Federation's annual campaign. They are essential for our today and tomorrow but need not cost you anything right now. The minimum gift amount is $150,000. Create an endowment fund to be used in support of a geographic or thematic area aligned with UJA’s work (e.g., Israel, New York metropolitan area, Jews globally, the elderly, children, food insecurity).
