LIFE & LEGACY
How do you express your commitment to your community? How do you support the Jewish organizations that are important to you? Omaha's Jewish community is fortunate to have many who donate their time and/or money to area Jewish organizations. However, what happens after the donors are gone? What can you do for future generations to ensure that they are well-served by the Jewish organizations you support?
You can leave a legacy.
On June 11, 2019, the Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation hosted a celebration in the JCC Gallery to honor the members of our community who made commitments to Omaha’s LIFE & LEGACY™ Program. Our keynote speaker was Bruce DeBoskey, J.D. Bruce DeBoskey is an experienced, knowledgeable and dynamic speaker. He is the founder of the DeBoskey Group and a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist On Philanthropy.
