Contribute to the future of JewishGen by planning for a special
kind of gift. A planned gift creates a meaningful personal legacy
at JewishGen, while securing the future of this important organization
and its mission.
There are many ways to include JewishGen in your charitable giving
and estate planning:
One of the easiest and most important ways to support JewishGen's future is by
naming JewishGen a beneficiary in your will.
This may be made with a specific dollar amount, asset, or
percentage of your estate. Please let us know if you have made a provision for JewishGen in your estate plans, so that we may honor you on JewishGen's Tree of Life Society. To submit a no-obligation "Letter of Intent" please Click Here .
Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is an agreement between you and JewishGen
that provides you with regular fixed payments for life in exchange
for transferring assets to JewishGen.
You may be eligible to receive significant income tax benefits,
and a portion of your annuity payments may be tax-free.
Minimum gift of $10,000 is required.
Retirement Plans and Beneficiary Designations
Retirement (i.e., IRA), life insurance, and real estate assets
may all be donated to JewishGen. Making a gift in this manner
can mean significant tax advantages for your estate and your heirs.
IRA Rollover Provision
In past years, friends of JewishGen who were 70½ or older were permitted to use their IRAs to make
a gift of up to $100,000 to JewishGen without reporting the withdrawal as taxable income. We will update this page with information for 2015 as it becomes available.
Each gift makes a difference.
Together with your own financial planners, let us help you create a legacy
to meet your unique financial, tax, and estate planning goals while ensuring
that JewishGen’s mission of “preserving our history for future
generations” continues. Donors who contribute through a planned gift or notify us that they
have made a provision for JewishGen in their estate plans are honored and
recognized as members of JewishGen's Tree of Life Society.
