We remember with immense gratitude the forethought and generosity of prior generations who have made it possible for CRS to thrive today. Their investment in us, a future generation they perhaps could not even imagine, reminds us that we too must commit to securing our community’s long-term viability and sustainability for those who will follow us. One of the best ways to do so is through making a planned gift for the benefit of Congregation Rodeph Sholom such as a bequest, life insurance policy, gift annuity, or charitable trust. In so doing, you can help perpetuate all that Rodeph Sholom stands for, so that future generations will benefit from the same spiritual and communal support as you have. Planned gifts are an excellent estate planning tool that may reduce or eliminate capital gains on certain assets, provide a maximum tax deduction, and reduce estate taxes—all while providing philanthropic support for our temple home.
Make a Bequest to CRS
You can leave a gift to CRS in your estate plans for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of assets, or the residual of your estate (what is left over after heirs and other obligations are provided for). Please consult with your attorney or financial planner to make arrangements for a bequest.
List CRS as a Beneficiary
Beneficiary designations are a simple way to make a planned gift. Just list CRS as a full or partial beneficiary of a retirement account, insurance policy, or savings account.
Share Your Intentions
If CRS is already in your estate plans, we would like to know so that we may thank you. We will be pleased to recognize you as members of the Ner Tamid Society, our group that honors members who have made planned gifts for the synagogue. Adding your name to the plaque in our beautiful new lobby will say “Hineini – I am here,” encouraging others to consider the role they too can play in securing our synagogue’s future.
