The JCC East Bay Legacy Society

The JCC East Bay inspires, serves, and connects the Jewish community – and the wider community – today. By remembering JCC East Bay with a gift in your will, trust, retirement account, or life insurance policy, you can help ensure that the JCC East Bay remains a thriving community for generations to come. With a legacy gift, anyone can leave a meaningful contribution to the future.

If you have already included a legacy gift to the JCC East Bay in your plans, please let us know. We would love the opportunity to thank you.

“Legacy giving is important to us because we want to ensure that these wonderful institutions will be ongoing, so that future generations can find the same joy and discovery of their Jewish heritage. L'dor V'dor. (From generation to generation)". 


– Nat and Bernadette Bitton

"The JCC of the East Bay has been integral to my family's relationship with our Jewish heritage. It is my hope that the JCC of the East Bay continues to reach an ever-increasing number of Jews of all backgrounds and allows them to discover and explore their own Jewish heritage and the wonders of Judaism. Legacy giving is way to ensure that this wonderful organization will continue to act as a home for Jewish life in the East Bay for future generations."

– Michael Tannenbaum and family

 Please contact us with any questions. We are happy to assist you.
