A Commitment to the Jewish Future.
The Jewish Future Pledge is a worldwide movement working to ensure that vibrant Jewish life continues for generations to come. It calls on all Jews to pledge that half or more of the charitable giving in their estate plan will support the Jewish people and/or the State of Israel.
Right now, as we are in the midst of a massive generational transfer of wealth, there is an unprecedented opportunity to secure the funds necessary for a vibrant Jewish future. Over the next 25 years, $68 trillion will transfer to the next generation, with $6.3 trillion project to be allocated to charity. The movement estimates that 20 percent of this allocation, or 1.26 trillion charitable dollars, will be given from Jewish donors.
Sustaining the Jewish people
By taking the Jewish Future Pledge, you can help ensure that more than $600 billion is set aside for Jewish causes when wealth is transferred from this generation to the next. Your commitment will shape and sustain the organizations you care about well into the future, and your signature sends a powerful message to family, friends and future generations about the importance of sustaining the Jewish people, at a time when a rising percentage of young people are disconnecting from their Jewish identity and Israel.
Atlanta Jewish Foundation is proud to be the Atlanta partner for the Jewish Future Pledge. We can assist in creating plans and structures to implement your Jewish Future Pledge after you sign it. We also offer services to help facilities family discussions and exploration of values around generational philanthropy.
