The Live On Society

Create a Lasting Legacy Through an Estate Gift

The very future of the Jewish people depends on the strength, vitality and relevance of our synagogues. As we have been for more than 100 years, so shall we continue to be the heart and soul of our community.

An estate gift can be the perfect way to strengthen our Jewish community in permanent ways.  Your gift will:

  • Continue your support of the values and causes that Temple Emanuel represents.
  • Create a lasting tribute to honor family, friends, and loved ones.
  • Leave the world a better place and make a difference: tikkun olam.

Temple Emanuel created the Live On Society to honor and recognize those who remember the synagogue in their estate plans. Any estate or endowment gift entitles the donor to become a current member of the Live On Society. This provides us with an opportunity to say “thank you” during a person’s life.

There are many different types of estate gifts that will help build and strengthen a permanent endowment for Temple Emanuel and our Jewish community. Please be sure to consult with your financial and legal advisors in order to determine which gifts make sense for your situation.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Francie Miran, Development Manager, at miran@emanueldenver.org or 303-388-4013, x335. There are no expectations or obligations to complete any gift.

Anonymous Gifts

Temple Emanuel recognizes that some donors prefer to remain anonymous when it comes to estate gifts. We honor and respect these wishes.

Of course, we would appreciate the opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for an estate gift whenever possible. In some cases, a client may allow an advisor to share his or her name with Temple Emanuel. In others, an advisor can play a helpful role in forwarding a ‘Thank You’ letter to a client, while still preserving his or her anonymity. Please share what works best for your client. Temple Emanuel places great importance on thanking people for their confidence and generosity, while respecting their wishes in every instance.
