“You don’t need immeasurable wealth to leave a legacy that makes an impact.
You just need to consider the future, now. The impact follows naturally.

Infinite Impact

Rich in compassion, fuelled by shared heritage, our commitment to supporting our own makes Cape Town’s Jewish community unique. This commitment enables 35 organisations – in education, yiddishkeit, welfare, Israel advocacy, health and safety, youth development, employment, and so much more – to enrich and sustain Jewish life for each of us. Their impact is infinite and immeasurable. Now yours can be too. After securing the future of your loved ones in your will, you can ensure the well-being of the community by making a donation in your will to The Cape Jewish Educational & Charitable Foundation. The income from your legacy will fund the communiy for generations to come.

What is a legacy?

A legacy is a codicil to your will specifying your wishes to leave a percentage of your estate, or set amount to your heirs.

What are the benefits of setting up a legacy?

Visionary, generous donors left legacies to the community in the past, which provides essential income today. Follow in their footsteps by leaving a gift, big or small, for those who come after you.
