Planned Giving is a method of charitable giving that involves a consideration of your retirement plan and/ or family estate to be distributed to Jewish Family Service upon your passing. Planned giving makes a difference. Often established in memory of a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion, permanent tributes help ensure Jewish Family Service of Northeastern Pennsylvania can provide critical service to the community in the future. Consider a bequest or lifetime gift to Jewish Family Service by:

  • Establishing a named endowment fund in honor or in memory of someone special;
  • Designating Jewish Family Service as a beneficiary of your will, trust, insurance or retirement plan;
  • Leaving a Legacy.

When making a gift to JFS in your will or trust, please use the following language:  I hereby give, devise and bequeath to Jewish Family Service of Northeastern Pennsylvania, with offices at 615 Jefferson Avenue, Scranton, PA, 18510, federal tax ID # 24-0796423, or its successors in interest, the sum of $(amount written), exclusive of my lifetime donations, if any, for use in its most urgent priorities as determined by its board of trustees in their sole discretion.

If you are interested, or if you have designated JFS as a beneficiary in supporting the Jewish Family Service, please contact our Executive Director Sheila Nudelman Abdo, Executive Director 570-344-1186.
