The Arc Receives Sizeable Bequest Via Planned Giving Program

May 26th, 2021

In mid-April, The Arc of Essex County received a $225,000 bequest from the estate of long-time donor and former Board Member, Jackie Juster.  Jackie was a member of The Arc of Essex County’s Board of Directors for more than 30 years. During her tenure on the board, she served as the chair of the nominating, government affairs, and finance and budget committees. She also served as a two-time delegate to The Arc of New Jersey from 1988-1990 and 1999-2002.  The Arc is honored by her generosity.
