Establish a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE)
The strength and vitality of a woman’s giving continues through a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE). Establishing a LOJE enables a woman to leave a legacy to safeguard the values that have inspired her own giving. A LOJE gift represents the creation of a permanent fund guaranteeing that a woman’s financial commitment of at least $5,000 will continue to be made to the UJA Annual Campaign in perpetuity.
Forever starts today! To create your own LOJE, please contact Diane Bakst, Director, Women’s Philanthropy, at email@example.com or (973) 9293056 or Michal Werner, Associate Executive Director, JCF, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (973) 929-2987.
