A bequest to the JCA may offer an opportunity to reduce estate taxes while building and preserving our community well into the future. Your bequest may be unrestricted to provide for our general operating costs or restricted to support one or many of our programs. Most assets in your estate may be used to satisfy your bequest and your taxable estate may be reduced by the amount of your contribution.

Including the JCA as part of your legacy giving plan, or signing a letter of intent to do so, may help you make a larger gift than you thought possible. We can work with you to develop a strategy that fulfills both your charitable goals and financial needs.

L’dor v’dor is known as the transmission of our Jewish culture, values, rituals, traditions and history from one generation to the next. With the literal meaning of the Hebrew phrase being, “from generation to generation,” l’dor v’dor is what our founders planned for the Jewish Community Alliance and what our community now embodies for families throughout Northeast Florida. With a mission to contribute to the continuation of Jewish life by providing a common meeting ground in the tradition of our heritage, our founding members left a legacy for future generations to learn, prosper and grow. The success of our founders’ vision is evident throughout our entire campus, but perhaps the best testaments are the now second and third-generation founding members who continue to inspire, support and enrich our environment of fun, harmony and friendship. From generation to generation for more than 30 years, we are proud to share all we do at the JCA to provide a better future for families throughout Northeast Florida. As our mission continues, the generosity of our annual donors and sponsors allows us to continue our founders’ vision and respond to the needs of every generation through scholarships and financial assistance, and by providing an array of recreational, educational, social and cultural opportunities to families throughout the greater Jacksonville community.
