Planned Giving for our Community


Just as we make provisions for the safety and security of our own families, so does the family of Jews in Akron make plans to ensure the continuity of Jewish life in our community. It just requires planning. And ALEF, the Akron Legacy & Endowment Fund, established by JewishAkron, can help you make those plans. 

By living generously now--and leaving a proud legacy for future generations through your gift to ALEF--you make a commitment to the future wellbeing and security of our Jewish community and to its social welfare, cultural and educational services.

ALEF provides an independent source of funding for community needs not met through JewishAkron's annual United Jewish Communities/Jewish Welfare Fund Campaign.

Bequests and other planned gifts to ALEF are invested wisely. The income--and under some circumstances, the principal--are then used by the Board and its agencies to respond to emergency needs or to fund programs that enrich community life.
