Queens College Jewish Legacy Society

Building for the Future


QC Hillel is proud to be part of the Life and Legacy Program, a partnership between Hillel International and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Through this program, QC Hillel has created the Queens College Jewish Legacy Society, a group of friends who have included Queens College Hillel in their wills or other estate plans. Legacy giving is a great way to invest on the future of the Jewish community on campus. Such gifts will help support programs, expand our presence on campus, and fund our endowment that will help keep our Hillel financially sustainable for generations to come.

There is no better time than now to make your legacy commitment. The Grinspoon Foundation will give us $5,000 in cash this year if we reach our goal of getting 18 legacy gift commitments. There is no minimum gift, and the amounts don't matter. While we encourage you to put us in for a percentage of your estate that can grow over time, any commitment will help us in the long term and help us achieve our goal. Your legacy commitment today can leverage $5,000 this year.

Friends who make Legacy gifts will be listed in the Queens College Jewish Legacy Society, and will be recognized in our Annual Report and other materials, and will have access to other privileges and special events as well. Want help navigating different planned giving options? Our team can help you think about bequests (leaving a gift in your will), by beneficiary designation in IRA or 401(k) or 403(b) retirement accounts, charitable gift annuities, life insurance policies with Hillel as the beneficiary, and many others. Need help? We have a legal and tax professional on staff to help you. Please contact legacy@qchillel.org with any questions about how you can join!
