I really cannot imagine Mercer County without the agency. I have seen how so many people are being helped by JFCS, some of whom are dealing with very desperate situations.
I have JFCS in my will so that I can feel I am doing my part in assuring its future”.
We’ve been proud supporters of JFCS of Greater Mercer County for about twelve years. We believe that just as others in our community provided support for JFCS decades ago, so the Agency would be here today as an integral part of our caring community, it’s incumbent on us to provide resources for the Agency to continue its vital work for decades to come. The Life & Legacy initiative gave us the perfect vehicle to accomplish this. A wonderful side benefit is that we have the opportunity to demonstrate to our adult children the importance of giving back to the community and Tikun Olam (repairing the world).
Life & Legacy is an easy way to perpetuate our values beyond our lifetime and support the JFCS programs and services that are so important to us. Furthermore, the Life & Legacy initiative requires no financial commitment from us until we no longer need our money for living expenses.
We hope that our participation in Life & Legacy will also help the Agency develop a culture of planned giving. By participating in Life & Legacy, we have the comfort of knowing that we are helping JFCS to be financially sound for the long-term. We hope others will join us in this endeavor.”
