Legacy Giving

When you name Temple Beth Am as a beneficiary of your estate, you express your Jewish values and provide lasting support for the Beth Am community. Legacy gifts may be made by designating Temple Beth Am in your will or living trust. You may also name Temple Beth Am as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, a retirement plan, or an IRA (Individual Retirement Account) by revising the beneficiary designation form. Your personal advisors can suggest the best ways for you to include Temple Beth Am in your estate plans. You may also be able to reserve a dedication or a memorial in anticipation of a future donation. 

The Legacy Group is an honorary group formed to recognize those devoted members and friends of Temple Beth Am who have included a gift for Beth Am in their estate plans.  Members of the Legacy Group are honored each year at a special Shabbat and are periodically listed in our publications.  

You may contact our Executive Director, Davida Sims, by telephone (206-525-0915) or by email (davida@templebetham.org) to discuss Legacy Giving.
