Will or Trust

Giving by will or Trust

The Orthodox Union is committed to meeting the multi-faceted needs of the Jewish community. A simple, flexible way to help us continue positively impacting Torah Jewry is through a gift in your will or trust. This is also known as a charitable bequest.

It’s easy to make a bequest. You simply specify on your will or codicil the amount you’d like to give the OU. Our planned giving advisor can help you with sample language for your will or codicil. He can also assist you in creating a ‘declaration of intent’.
