Ways to Create a Lasting Legacy
After providing for your loved ones, a bequest specifies a gift in your will to JNF. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount; a percentage of a remaining amount; a residuary; a particular asset such as stocks, bonds, and real estate; or tangible personal property, such as art work, antiques, jewelry, rare books or collectibles. You may designate a bequest toward a specific JNF project or you may let JNF decide where the current needs are most pressing. Read more
