The Union for Reform Judaism Annual Campaign (formerly known as the Fund for Reform Judaism or FRJ) supports the operating budget of the URJ, providing essential support to Reform congregations throughout North America, and enabling creative collaborations to meet the ever-changing challenges and needs of Reform congregations.
Make a commitment and give a Major Gift to the Union.
At a time when the Reform Jewish community is thriving and becoming increasingly more diverse, a major gift will enable the Union to be more responsive to the growing needs of our movement. The major gift program provides the resources to develop new programs and services for our congregations, make them available to more of our members, and create new initiatives in response to the changing needs of Reform Jewish life in North America.
Through a bequest; a gift of retirement plan assets, real property or appreciated securities; or a life income gift such as a charitable remainder trust or gift annuity, you can guarantee that the Reform movement remains the most vibrant stream of Judaism in North America.
IRA Charitable Rollover Provision Extended through 2013
The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) is pleased to inform our supporters that on January 2, 2013, the American Tax Payer Relief Act of 2012 was signed into law, allowing individuals at least 70 ½ years of age to make gifts from their traditional or ROTH IRAs without incurring federal income taxes or early withdrawal penalties.
