Life and Legacy

The Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region connects individuals, organizations, and generations to better care for those in need; to create and nurture Jewish identity; and to ensure no one gets left behind. We help ensure a solid future for every step of Jewish life, from PJ Library to vital services for seniors. We ensure the community’s philanthropic donations are directed to those who need it most, when they need it most. Our Legacy Family is a group of dedicated and committed individuals who want to guarantee that the Federation continues to provide its programs and services for many years to come.

By establishing a legacy through a bequest or planned gift, you will plant the seed for future generations, doing your part to make sure the Federation and our Jewish community remain strong and vibrant for years to come. 

All of us, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation, have the ability to make a difference for future Jewish generations.

The choice—and the responsibility—is ours alone.
