Annual Campaign Endowments/PACE and LOJE
 

PACE, the Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment The UJA Federation Annual Campaign alone cannot secure the future of the Jewish community. Your PACE fund can.

Flame
A Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE) is a permanent fund of your federation established in your name. This restricted fund, created to endow your gift to the UJA Federation Annual Campaign, allows your lifelong investment in your community to continue, providing help when and where it is needed ­ indefinitely.

A PACE fund is not intended to substitute for any part of an annual gift. It is your lasting legacy for the future.

If you make this gift during your lifetime, you receive a charitable income tax deduction. There are a variety of ways to create endowments that do not have to be funded during your lifetime and still provide you with considerable tax benefits.

National PACE Honor Society

In addition to local recognition, the National PACE Honor Society celebrates your endowment of your annual campaign gift with inclusion of your name, by permission, on a national honor roll ­-- a public affirmation of your Jewish values and philanthropic commitment and a powerful example to your children, your heirs and your community.

All PACE funds are invested and prudently managed for maximum yield.

For more information about how PACE can work for you and your community, call your local federation endowment director or your personal financial advisor today.

LOJE, the Lion of Judah Endowment

The UJA Federation Annual Campaign alone cannot secure the future of the Jewish community. Your LOJE fund can.

The Lion of Judah Endowment, or LOJE, is the endowment component of the Lion of Judah Major Gifts program. It is a powerful statement of your commitment to tzedakah, providing a legacy for family and community.

The United Jewish Communities National Women's Constituency, inspired by 3,000 years of Jewish tradition and dedicated to the survival and strength of Israel and the Jewish people, has forged a new role for women in the Jewish community.

As women in general increase their share of authority over America's wealth, Jewish women in particular are setting the standards for creative philanthropic giving and commitment to future generations.

In the forefront are Women's Constituency Lion of Judah donors who have established a Lion of Judah Endowment to perpetuate their annual campaign gift.

Every woman who contributes $5,000 or more to her community's annual campaign can establish a LOJE by establishing a fund of $100,000 or more in her name, ensuring perpetuation of her Lion of Judah level annual campaign gift.

A LOJE fund is not intended to substitute for any part of an annual gift. ­ It is your lasting legacy for the future.

If you make this gift during your lifetime, you receive a charitable income tax deduction. There are a variety of ways to create endowments that do not have to be funded during your lifetime and still provide you with considerable tax benefits.

National LOJE Recognition

In addition to recognition within your community, your endowment of your annual campaign gift is recognized with the addition of the prestigious Or L'Atid flame or light unto the future, added to your Lion of Judah pin.

Your Lion of Judah pin is an internationally recognized symbol of your dedication to the Jewish people. A public affirmation of your Jewish values and philanthropic commitment and a powerful example to your children, your heirs and your community.

The Lion of Judah Endowment program (LOJE) is the National Women's Constituency Major Gifts component of the Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE) program.

All LOJE funds are invested and prudently managed for maximum yield.

For more information about how LOJE can work for you and your community, call your local federation endowment director or your personal financial advisor today.
