Planned Giving

We all make decisions during our life that reflect our values. Have you ever considered making a legacy gift by including Temple Kol Ami in your estate plan? Planned giving is one of the most powerful ways for congregants to acknowledge the importance of their synagogue life, and a legacy gift will allow us to continue our commitment to our strong Jewish values, education and spiritual growth. A gift from you will help ensure the vitality of Kol Ami beyond your lifetime and for generations to come.

There are many flexible options for giving.


Remember Temple Kol Ami in your Will

List TKA (or a specific TKA Endowment Fund) as a beneficiary in your will or estate plan


Use Life Insurance to make a gift

We can help you explore options, including naming TKA as a beneficiary for an existing policy, or purchasing a new policy naming TKA as the beneficiary. There are tax advantages for both methods.


Donate Stock

If you donate stock to Temple Kol Ami that you have owned for one year or longer, and the stock is worth more than you originally paid, there can be beneficial tax advantages for you.


Create a Charitable Remainder Trust

Receive income each year from the Trust that you create with the remaining balance going to Temple Kol Ami after you are gone.

This type of gift will have a lasting impact for Temple Kol Ami’s future. Make your legacy a part of Temple’s Success! If you would like more information about these planned giving opportunities, contact your estate planner or financial planner or call Cheryl Chaben Friedman, Executive Director at (248)661-0040.
