Planned Giving at JVS

Jewish Refugee Poster

80 years ago, a young woman named Ida Hoos approached the Jewish community, wanting to help the refugees coming to America. Thanks to her vision, and the support of countless donors, JVS is still helping refugees and immigrants, working with them to find employment and build careers. Today, JVS works with refugees and immigrants from all over the world, as well as people with disabilities and others facing obstacles to work. With career coaching, English language instruction, and other support, we are preparing our clients to become employed and reach their own American Dream.

Whether your family was helped by JVS, or you simply want to help others for years to come, you can create a legacy through a planned gift to JVS.

Planned gifts can be as simple as leaving a line in your will, or involve more complicated mechanisms. Here at JVS, we’d like to help you continue your support into the future. Here is some introductory information, and we are always happy to provide more.
