Creating an endowment to perpetuate your annual campaign gift is a wonderful way to sustain your life-long investment in the Jewish community

The United Jewish Federation of Tidewater (UJFT) provides vital support to our Jewish organizations locally, in Israel, and around the world. Through a single gift to the Federation’s Community Campaign, you can impact so many lives around the world. A gift of endowment ensures that your generosity and vision will have an impact that extends far beyond your lifetime.

  • PACE: Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment

    A PACE fund is a lasting legacy for the future – a gift that will inspire your family and community for generations to come. There are several ways to create endowments that may not be funded during your lifetime and still provide you with considerable tax benefits.

Extend your commitment. Inspire the next generation -- and generations after that. Make a connection to the future. Your gift will make a difference.


Jewish tradition teaches us that we are one link in a long chain, and we must work to maintain continuity for those who will come after us. 


Year after year, we have relied on your gift to the annual campaign to sustain our Jewish community. A PACE gift will secure the future you helped build. It is a symbol of your commitment to tzedakah and the eternal well being of the Jewish people.
