Bequests and other testamentary gifts by generous alumni and friends have been a significant source of financial support for Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion for over 140 years. These gifts enable the College-Institute to support our historic and transformative mission, sustain our commitment to academic excellence, and provide the bold leadership that is needed to ensure the future of Reform Judaism and the Jewish people.
A gift to HUC-JIR through your estate plan qualifies you as a member of the 1875 Society, created to recognize and thank donors whose foresight is sustaining the future of the College-Institute.
Suggested Language for Unrestricted Bequests:
“I give, devise and bequeath _______________________ (a dollar amount, or all or a percentage of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate) to Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, an Ohio nonprofit tax-exempt corporation for its tax-exempt charitable purposes.”
If you would like to designate your gift to a particular program or purpose, please contact Susan G. Kulick, J.D., National Director of Gift Planning, to discuss the appropriate language.
