A direct contribution of cash, stock or property through our JFCS Endowment Fund is the easiest way to make a planned gift. Your gift will help the agency meet its current needs, and extend the impact of your gift well into the future.

By simply including a clause in your will or codicil, you can ensure a lasting legacy to JFCS. Your estate receives a Federal estate tax deduction for the gift.

Suggested Language for a Will or Codicil:

I hereby give, devise, and bequeath the sum of $ __  or __ % of my estate to the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. (1301 Springdale Rd, Cherry Hill, NJ 08003), to establish the “Name of Donor Endowment Fund.” The JCF is a non-profit corporation organized and operating under the laws of the State of New Jersey, and the EIN for the JCF is 20-1260545.

Five percent (5%) of the total value of the Fund is to be used on an annual basis to make a gift to Samost Jewish Family & Children’s Service.

A CRT is an irrevocable trust into which you can donate assets in exchange for income, either for life or for a specific term of years. After the trust term ends, or all income beneficiaries have passed away, the remaining principal is gifted to JFCS.

Naming JFCS as the owner and irrevocable beneficiary of a life insurance policy is one of the most convenient ways to make a significant future gift to JFCS; premium payments on the policy are tax deductible. You can also gift existing insurance policies, and may be entitled to a tax deduction for the approximate cash surrender value.

JFCS is proud to partner with the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. (JCF)! As the planned giving and endowment arm of the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey. JCF can work with you and your advisor to establish your legacy gift. For more information, call JCF at (856) 673-2582 or email infojcf@jfedsnj.org
