A Gift That Honors a Life

Memorials and Tributes

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Minneapolis Jewish Federation, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

An Example of This Type of Gift

Couple SmilingWhen Wendy's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising the Federation for its tireless efforts to better his community. So Wendy decided to make a gift to the Federation in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at the Federation thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Wendy also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
