The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee created The Beatrice Friedman Legacy Society to recognize and thank those who have made the most personal and thoughtful gift of all: a commitment to The Federation through a will, trust agreement, prepaid life insurance policy or other estate planning vehicle. Are you considering making a gift to the Federation? Visit our Ways to Give page for complete information.


“It is gratifying to know that we have taken positive action to bring into being the Jewish future of our dreams. I am delighted to know that a single gift can have such a long lasting effect.”  ~ Bea Friedman
