Personal Donor Stories
Every day, donors make UJA-Federation a part of their story by establishing a planned gift. Meet some of them below:
Rabbi Michael Paley, the scholar-in-residence at UJA-Federation, honors the memory of Ira and Pearl Meyer, who endowed the scholar-in-residence position to leave a legacy that showed their commitment to learning and their love of Jewish texts.
Jim Meyer understands the importance of the endowment and his deep belief in the federated model of giving led him to establish a charitable gift annuity and a provision for UJA-Federation in his will.
Linda and Jerry Spitzer feel that a planned gift is the only way for their values to persist long into the future. Both have established multiple charitable gift annuities and Linda has created a Lion of Judah Endowment Fund.
Sisters Selma Toback and Deborah Davis have both made gifts to UJA-Federation through their wills. Selma has participated in many UJA-Federation missions and has seen our important work firsthand. Deborah feels that her gift connects her to our network of nonprofits.
