Our October News:

Happy New Year!  

At this time of reflection and gratitude, we want to thank each of you for your contribution to Create Your Jewish Legacy, to the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, and for your kindness, sincerity, and the relationships we’ve been able to form. You make our work a true pleasure! We wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year, full of joy, more success, meaning, inspiration, and all good things.
 
Shana Tova,

2016 Young Leadership Awards: We recently celebrated the winners of the Young Leadership Awards, including through a video, at the Jewish Federation Major Gifts Dinner on Wednesday, September 28. (Photos here.)
 
It’s endowments that allow us to provide this well-deserved recognition to our community’s young leaders. Families and individuals set up three separate endowments in the name of Kate Mack, Allen Cowett, and Clara Greller—themselves respected leaders—to honor their memory, and pass on the torch.
 
Every two years, we celebrate the Mack, Cowett, and Greller legacy by recognizing those that are following in their footsteps. L’dor v’dor—from generation to generation.

Voice of Giving Award: Recently, Rick and Julie Kantor were among 25 local philanthropists honored by the Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council with a Voices of Giving Award in recognition of their steadfast support of our community. The awards were presented on behalf of nonprofit organizations who have benefited from the honoree's generous bequest or planned gift.

We are so grateful for their generosity — Mazel Tov!

Mauri Willis on personal strength and giving: Mauri Willis's parents taught her personal strength through adversity, as well as the importance of contributing to the community. Since her children were born, Mauri has been a "professional volunteer" for innumerable Jewish organizations both locally and nationally. With her legacy gift, Mauri would like to ensure that the things that are important to her today will be able to continue in the future.
