Planned Giving

Creating your lasting legacy to sustain IKAR for future generations

עלמא בחרובא אשכחתיה כי היכי דשתלי לי אבהתי שתלי נמי לבראי

“I found a world with carob trees in it. Just as my ancestors planted for me, so I will plant for those who will come after me”. Babylonian Talmud, Ta’anit 23a


When you make a planned gift to IKAR you are carrying on the tradition of tzedakah for future generations, ensuring that the work of IKAR will continue after your lifetime. Planned gifts are a great way to give back and continue your legacy of philanthropy. These gifts likely cost you nothing today and help you make a tax-wise investment for your future.


Will or Living Trust

You may include IKAR in your will or Living Trust by simply indicating a specific amount or percentage of your estate to be gifted to IKAR. Please use our legal name (IKAR), our Tax ID (20-1210098) and our office address (1737 S. LA Cienega Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90035).

You lawyer may find this language helpful:

I hereby bequeath ______________ (a dollar amount, or all, or a percentage of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate) to IKAR, Tax ID 20-1210098, now or formerly in the city of Los Angeles, 1737 S. La Cienega Boulevard in the State of California, for its general purposes.                           .

Gifts of Retirement Funds, Life Insurance, and Bank Accounts

Naming IKAR as a beneficiary of your retirement funds, life insurance, or bank accounts is a generous and simple way to make legacy gift outside of a will. To name IKAR as a beneficiary of your retirement funds or life Insurance, request a change of beneficiary form from your plan administrator. For bank or brokerage accounts you would need to fill out the appropriate form based on your financial institution’s requirements.

These are the details you would need to fill out the forms:

Legal Name: IKAR
Address: 1737 S. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90035
Phone: 323-634-1870
TAX ID: 20-1210098

Planned gifts are critical for the long-term sustainability of IKAR and will ensure the stability of the organization and our commitment to Jewish life, justice, and equality.

Thank you for considering IKAR as your charitable choice for a planned gift.

We would love to know about your gift and recognize your contribution. Please complete the form below to let us know your plans.
