Insure Your Legacy With the Shared Premium Program

Never thought you could be a $1 million donor? Think again…

Life insurance is a unique and important charitable gift planning tool for individuals looking to create a lasting, significant legacy in the community.

How It Works

You pay first five years of your life insurance premium.

The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County pays the next five years.

Your legacy is created.

How the Program Helps You

  • Create a powerful, significant and guaranteed endowment in the community at a modest, tax-deductible out-of-pocket expense.
  • Leave a lasting impact on the Jewish community—ensuring your name, legacy and values live on.
  • Continue contributions forever, without disrupting current estate or retirement plans, or reducing bequests to loved ones.
  • Direct a percentage of your endowment to support specific causes and priorities in the Jewish community that you feel passionate about.
