to help not only the Jews on trial
but to win the freedom of all the

New U.S. Income
Tax Laws a Boon
to Federation

New federal income tax legisla-
tion regarding foundations has re-
sulted in new interest in the en-
dowment program of the Jewish
Welfare Federation and United
Jewish Charities, Milton J. Miller,
chairman of the program, reported
to the UJC board this week.
Federation and the UJC have
been approved as "public chari-
ties," eligible for special tax ex-
emptions within a pooled endow-
ment fund arrangement, Miller
Three major new funds have
been founded recently. They are
the Edward C. Levy Sr. Endow-
ment Fund, Bernice and Alfred L.
Deutsch Endowment Fund and the
Daniel E. Cohn Memorial Fund
established by Abner Wolf.
An addition to the United Jew-
ish Charities program is a $250;-
000 insurance policy recently
presented by Samuel Schilit pres-
ident of the Industrial Mario...Pry
News. An endowment fund in his
name will be set up with the
annual income to be used in per-
petuity for the Allied Jewish
Another facet of the endowment
program, the "declaration of in-
tent" project, has shown a marked
increase in popularity in the'past
four months. Called the "genesis
of philanthropy," a letter of intent
indicates that the signer will M-
aude the Jewish community in his
future financial plans as he does
his estate planning.
"These programs assure our
children and their children of a
secure community which will be
able to provide for Jewish needs
with continuity," Irwin Green,
United Jewish Charities president,
said. "It is just like a family which
places savings in a bank so that
it will be protected in the future
against unforeseen emergencies."
Benefits of the establishment of
a foundation within the pooled en-
dowment fund, of arranging for a
testamentary bequest or the crea-
tion of an insurance program
benefiting the community should be
examined by everyone doing estate
planning now or in the near future,
Green and Miller said.

neth Sarason, director of the en-
dowment program at the Jewish
Welfare Federation, WO 5.3939. -
