The Netzach Legacy Society recognizes donors who intend to include the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in their estate plans through a planned gift. Planned gifts include bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and property interests.
The word netzach means eternity in Hebrew. Through their planned gift to Pardes, members of The Netzach Legacy Society help ensure the eternity of the Jewish people by supporting the work of the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies. Providing Pardes with specific information regarding the purpose of a bequest or planned gift allows Pardes to ensure that your philanthropic intentions can be carried out. In addition, this information greatly helps Pardes in planning for the future.
If you have provided for Pardes in your estate plan but have not yet informed us, please consider doing so. We would be honored to enroll you in The Netzach Legacy Society and include your name in publications honoring members. Membership involves no dues or obligations.
To date, The Netzach Legacy Society has raised nearly $4,000,000 for Pardes.
For more information or to request membership, please contact Joshua Chadajo, Executive Director, North America at 1 (212) 447-4333 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why is the Netzach Legacy Society important?
In many cases, planned giving allows a donor to leave a gift larger than they ever thought possible. In doing so, you are not only helping to secure Pardes’s financial future, but you are also leaving a philanthropic legacy that is sure to impact your children and grandchildren. You are passing on your values – your commitment to charitable giving, to open and serious Torah learning and to Israel. You are directly helping Pardes to fulfill its mission to provide an Israel learning experience that is second to none while also inspiring others to follow your example.
Planned giving achieves all of these incredible goals while also helping your family to protect assets by eliminating or reducing exposure to taxes. Making a planned gift can be a very meaningful and savvy decision that benefits you, your children and Pardes.
