Planned Gifts

Create a Jewish Legacy program

The Create a Jewish Legacy program helps individuals and families create legacy gifts, providing a permanent source of support for the causes you care about.

Leaving a legacy is simple. Make a gift of $1,800 or more to benefit the Jewish Museum Milwaukee and declare your intent through any of the following options:

  • a simple bequest in a will or trust
  • an IRA or pension plan
  • a life insurance policy
  • a charitable remainder trust
  • a donor-advised fund
  • or outright gift using appreciated assets or cash

Give to one of the established endowments listed below or start your own planned gift fund. Please consult with your financial advisor to determine the option that is best for you. Contact the Executive Director at (414) 390-5730 to discuss your wishes.
