Gifts to endowment can take many forms, including lifetime giving, bequests, charitable gift annuities and insurance policies.
Gifts of Cash – Establishing your fund within the UJC Endowment Fund using cash is as simple as writing a check.
Gifts of Stock – Donors enjoy a two-fold advantage in donating long-term appreciated assets: they avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the asset.
Life Insurance Policy – Using a life insurance policy insures our Jewish future in a unique and meaningful way. This method can be very cost-effective, especially for the younger donor.
Retirement Plans – These can be powerful tools for endowing a charitable legacy to the community while avoiding heavy estate and income taxes.
Real Estate & Investment Properties – For some donors, gifts of real estate may be the most convenient way to make a meaningful gift as they continue to support the work of the UJC Endowment Fund.
Other Options – There are many other ways to make a gift of almost any size.
A gift of endowment ensures that your generosity and vision will have an impact that extends far beyond your lifetime.
