LETTER OF INTENT
 

The Indianapolis Jewish community has been selected as a LIFE & LEGACY program partner of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Beth-El Zedeck is one of fourteen Jewish organizations in central Indiana participating in this project. Participants in the LIFE & LEGACY program are members of our Dor l’Dor Society.

Participating is simple. All that is required is for you to complete a Letter of Intent in which you indicate you either already have remembered Beth-El Zedeck in your estate plans or that you intend to do so. Because this is a community-wide effort, you’re able to designate multiple organizations on the same form. You may even choose to keep your estate plans anonymous.

Thank you in advance for ensuring the strength of our community now and for the future.
