Legacy Giving

You may contribute to the future of Temple Beth Sholom and of the general Salem Jewish community by planning for a special kind of gift. There are many creative and flexible options that can benefit you and the synagogue. You can help ensure the synagogue’s future by creating a trust while you are living or by including TBS in your will.

Through Planned Giving, you can leave a permanent legacy for the Jewish community that reflects your values and commitment to maintaining a vibrant and lasting Jewish presence in Salem. While we encourage gifts for general, unrestricted purposes so that your gift can be used to address the most pressing needs of the community, we will certainly give careful consideration to any programs or other specific desires that you express in your final wishes.

Legacy giving should be part of a comprehensive plan as developed with your personal financial and legal advisers. The TBS operations manager and/or relevant Board members are available to discuss your plans with you and your advisers as needed.
