Sharsheret Legacy Circle

Twenty years is a generation. At Sharsheret, twenty years is a generation of Jewish daughters, mothers, grandmothers and their families and the hallmark of the future of our Jewish community. Marking our 20th anniversary demonstrates how far Sharsheret has come in changing the face of breast cancer and ovarian cancer for this generation and inspires us to look forward and strengthen the chain of support, wellbeing, and community for the next generation.

We invite you to join the Sharsheret Legacy Circle and to include Sharsheret in your estate or financial plans, leaving a profound and lasting legacy at Sharsheret. Through your Sharsheret Legacy Gift, you may realize significant financial and tax benefits while also helping to improve the lives of Jewish women and families facing breast and ovarian cancer nationwide.

There are several options available to you to include Sharsheret in a meaningful way in your long-range planning. The simplest is a bequest in your will. You may share the following language with your legal advisor: “I hereby give and bequeath to Sharsheret, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation having its principal offices at 1086 Teaneck Road, Suite 2G, Teaneck, NJ 07666 $[your gift] to be used for its general purposes.” You may also choose to simply designate Sharsheret as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, a life insurance policy, or of a bank account, security, or charitable trust.

Thank you for your consideration, support and commitment to the future of Sharsheret. The Sharsheret Legacy Circle will strengthen the chain of support and ensure that every Jewish woman and family can benefit from Sharsheret, today, tomorrow and for generations to come.

For more information and to plan your Sharsheret Legacy Gift, please contact Chief Executive Officer Elana Silber at [email protected] or call 866.474.2774.
