A New Year Includes New Opportunities

It’s not too late to say L’Shana Tova! May this be a good and sweet year for all.

Now is also time for BJH Foundation to say “Thank You!” for an unexpected testamentary gift. The new year of 5779 is already brighter and Jewish adults will be the ultimate beneficiaries.

A donor quietly admired BJH Foundation, especially the grants awarded to benefit the Jewish adult population throughout North and South Carolina. This person observed life improvements the various grants made and decided to share their estate at the time of death.

Most people want to be remembered in positive ways by their kind deeds and mitzvahs. Some receive personal satisfaction knowing they can continue helping others long after they are gone with a testamentary gift.

In the case of BJH Foundation, this gift will increase available funds for future grants providing

services such as Case Management, Congregational Nursing, Dementia and Memory Impairment, Transportation, as well as many other focus areas.

Jewish Family Services of Western North Carolina recently shared this message from a Jewish adult attending the Elder Club program fund by a BJH Foundation grant, “Before I came here (to the Elder Club), I was very sad and alone even though I had my family with me. Now that I come here my life has changed. Just a terrific group of people. I can’t wait ‘til it’s Wednesday. I am smiling the entire time I am here. I wish we had more days.”

BJH Foundation funds programs helping improve lives of Jewish adults while connecting people with needed services. Grants awarded throughout North and South Carolina help Jewish adults, some with varying degrees of mental and or physical health issues.
