Wills & Bequests


Gifts from your will or trust can be made in any amount – no matter how large or small. It offers an easy way to ensure you leave a legacy that costs you nothing during your lifetime and lessen the burden of taxes on your family. Under current tax law, there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests.

You can give a percent, an amount, or a specific asset through your will or trust. You can direct your bequest to be unrestricted or direct it to a specific purpose (please consult us to ensure your gift can be used as intended). For more information and sample bequest language, click here.

Gifts of Retirement Assets


Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to the Jewish Federation of Howard County. The balance of your retirement plan may be worth more when donated to the Jewish Federation of Howard County than to your heirs. For more information, click here.
