Eitz Chaim Legacy Society Update

For more than a year now, YES has participated in the Jewish Community Foundation’s “Create a Jewish Legacy” Program.  The goal of this two-year endowment development project is to build a strong, vibrant community now and well into the future with bequests for permanent endowments.  This past June, YES Eitz Chaim Society members joined with the greater Milwaukee Jewish community for an evening of celebration upon the completion of the program’s the first year.  For our ’14-’15 successes in securing Legacy commitments, YES was awarded a $10,000 grant.  We are thankful to the Jewish Community Foundation of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation for this gift.  With the help of continued interest in and pledges to our YES Legacy program, we hope to once again qualify for another $10,000 for the coming ’15-’16 year.

Members of our Legacy Society will continue to be honored and acknowledged publicly in various ways.  Our new Eitz Chaim Legacy Society Honor Roll plaque is ready to be mounted in our bright skylight hallway.  We are grateful to Mr. Yehuda (Richard) Goldberg of Yehuda Manufacturing Company LLC, for creating this beautiful work of wooden art for our school.  Please stop by to visit the Honor Roll plaque next time you visit YES.

Please contact me to discuss your Legacy.
