Rodeph Sholom Legacy Endowment Fund

Congregation Rodeph Sholom has a rich history spanning more than 100 years.  Now, we are working to secure our synagogue's future for the next 100 years.  That is why we created an endowment fund, "Inscribing Our Legacy." Please consider making Congregation Rodeph Sholom's future part of your legacy.

"Make L'dor V"dor Mean Even More"

"Make L'dor V'dor Mean Even More"
"Do Jews believe in an afterlife?" is a question we frequently hear.  While we cannot be sure about the afterlife, one thing is perfectly clear - our good deeds and mitzvot can live on long after we are gone.
THE RODEPH SHOLOM LEGACY ENDOWMENT FUND was created so a gift now will live on as our legacy for future generations of Rodeph Sholom members.  It will enable Rodeph Sholom to continue its spiritual mission for decades to come.  Just as we have benefited from previous generations of Rodeph members, the Legacy Fund will help us do the same for those who come after us.
Rodeph Sholom is not unique in that our yearly dues and donations do not cover all the expenses necessary to run our Congregation.  Endowment funds are expected to become more important for the survival of Jewish institutions in the future.  By making a Legacy commitment, you are demonstrating your faith in the long-term future of Rodeph Sholom and the values that are important to you.
Your gift to the Legacy Fund is put into a fund that will exist in perpetuity.  The Fund is administered by the TOP Foundation which provides professional management and administration for Tampa, Orlando, and Pinellas Jewish institutions.  Only the interest generated from your gift can be used to sustain our congregation on a yearly basis.
A Legacy gift to Rodeph Sholom is meant to be a donation that is important and meaningful to you.  Funds can be given outright, or you can choose to leave a gift through your will or estate plan.  Financial instruments such as cash, stocks, bonds, annuities, life insurance, real estate, or personal property are all options with which to fund your Legacy gift.  We will work with you to tailor a plan appropriate for your situation.
YOU CAN BECOME A MEMBER of the Legacy Society.  NO FUNDS NEED TO BE GIVEN AT THIS TIME.  Your planned gift is a lifetime legacy gift to your Congregation.  If you have already made provisions for a planned gift for Rodeph Sholom, please let us know so that we may recognize your generosity.
To get more information about the Legacy Endowment Fund contact me or Ken Kahn in the synagogue office.
Rodeph Sholom appreciates your consideration and thank you for helping to "Make L'Dor V'Dor Mean Even More."
