The Orthodox Union is proud to partner with Jewish Future Pledge, a worldwide movement working to ensure that vibrant Jewish life continues for generations to come. It calls on all Jews to pledge that half or more of the charitable giving in their will/estate plan will support the Jewish people and/or the State of Israel. Whether you’re leaving $10 or $10 million for tzedaka in your will, you can be a part of securing the Jewish future for generations to come.

Together, the Orthodox Union and Jewish Future Pledge will advance a shared vision of chesed and commitment to secure a vibrant Jewish future for the Klal, sparking critical intergenerational conversations about Jewish values and proliferating a culture of legacy giving.

The $630 Billion Opportunity



Right now, there is an unprecedented opportunity to secure the funds necessary for a vibrant Jewish future. Over the next 25 years, a mind-boggling $68 trillion will transfer to the next generation, with $6.3 trillion allocated to charity. We estimate that 20 percent of this allocation or $1.26 trillion charitable dollars will be given from Jewish donors.

By taking the Jewish Future Pledge, you can help ensure that more than $600 billion is set aside for the Jewish community and its causes when wealth is transferred from this generation to the next.

Together, let’s pledge to make a difference now and into the future. Learn more.

"When we first heard about the Jewish Future Pledge we assumed it was only for wealthy individuals. But when we examined the concept and discussed it with our children, we decided it was a wonderful way for a middle-class family to ensure an appropriate legacy."
