Alon Binyamin Legacy Society

Camp Ramah in California has a simple and clear vision for the future: keeping camp accessible for all Jewish children by making certain that no child is ever denied a summer at Ramah for financial reasons.

You can help us achieve this vision with a legacy gift to Camp Ramah. We would be honored to be the recipient of your legacy, and your gift will make a difference in perpetuity for future generations of campers.

You may establish your legacy gift through any of the following methods:

Bequests: Simply name Camp Ramah in California as a beneficiary in your will or living trust. You may arrange for a specific amount or percentage, or name the camp as a residual beneficiary.

Retirement Plans/Life Insurance: You may name Camp Ramah in California as a beneficiary of all or part of your life insurance policy and/or your retirement plans.

Charitable Remainder Trusts: In collaboration with your attorney, you may create a charitable remainder trust (CRT) that allows you to donate a piece of property, cash, or stock to the trust and receive an income stream and charitable tax deduction in return. You can name Camp Ramah in California as the beneficiary, and we will receive the remainder of the CRT upon your passing.

We encourage you to consult with your professional advisors prior to establishing a planned gift. For additional materials, or if you have questions, please contact Randy Michaels ( or 310-476-8571)
