Donna and Ward Katz

Throughout our lives we have been involved in the Jewish community of Kansas City and in support of Israel. We want to be certain that these commitments to the community continue beyond our lives. We believe that the survival of Israel is critical to the survival and growth of Judaism. We need strong local Jewish communities to provide the means of support to Israel. This is a legacy we have inherited from our parents and grandparents. In addition, we would like to provide a means for our children to develop the same interests even though they may not both live in Kansas City.

We have been involved with the Jewish Community Foundation for almost 30 years, have seen it grow and develop as the backbone of our community and the source of strength for years to come. It is the logical vehicle to carry out our wishes.
