Planned giving at JF&CS

By leaving a legacy gift to JF&CS, you will be forever making a change and impact on your community.  

For over 150 years, Jewish Family and Child Service has been there Every Step of the Way.  Thanks to the generosity of donors such as yourself, JF&CS has always been able to help those in need.  Now it is our duty to ensure that JF&CS can continue to serve our community’s most vulnerable for another 150 years. By leaving a legacy gift to JF&CS, you are taking care of our community’s future.  Your gift will help alleviate poverty, support women leaving abusive relationships, help people receive an education and pursue future goals and support individuals and families going through difficult times.

Your gift will be your legacy.

The Legacy Society is named in honour of Gordon Wolfe,  Executive Director of JF&CS from 1981 – 2003.  As a visionary, Gordy brought to the agency new programs that targeted some of the most vulnerable members of the community.  “It is my hope that JF&CS will continue its mission as the champion of those who have no champion.”  Click here to read more.
