Planned gifts help to ensure the strength of our community. A planned gift is one that is committed during a donor’s lifetime naming WJC as the beneficiary and can be in many forms, one of which is a bequest. By making a bequest to the Woodstock Jewish Congregation, your gift will sustain Jewish prayer, learning, and community in the years to come.
Planned gifts can offer donors significant tax benefits as part of estate planning and may also be structured to provide income to donors during their lifetimes. The Planned Giving program at WJC encourages and assists donor planned gifts to the synagogue by informing them about program needs, gift opportunities, and techniques of planned giving. Prospective donors are also urged to seek the advice of their own counsel in matters relating to planned gifts, taxes and estate planning.
