Planned Giving

With planned giving, you can help ensure the future of the vulnerable children served by JCCA. Planned gifts support JCCA’s mission and provide benefits to you and your heirs. Please contact Thom Hamill at hamillt@jccany.org or 212-558-9900 to learn more about the following ways you can include JCCA in your estate plans:

Bequests. Remembering JCCA in your will or trust is easy to do: Simply designate a specific dollar amount for JCCA in your will. You may also donate specific property—for example, securities or real estate, or the proceeds thereof—to JCCA.

Retirement assets. You can name JCCA as the partial or sole beneficiary of your IRA, tax-sheltered annuity, qualified pension, profit-sharing plan, or other retirement asset. By leaving such assets to JCCA, you can pass on other assets to your heirs which may lower your tax burden.

Life insurance assets. You can also name JCCA as the partial or sole beneficiary of your life insurance policy. By leaving the proceeds of an insurance policy to JCCA, the gift of the insurance policy will not be subject to estate taxes upon your death. Also, if you transfer ownership of the policy to JCCA during your lifetime, you may qualify for an income tax charitable deduction and deduct the cost of future premium payments.

Charitable gift annuities. A transfer of cash or stocks to JCCA in exchange for a charitable gift annuity will guarantee you an income stream for life. We’re able to personalize plans for you and get you the best possible rate of return, depending on your age.

If you have already made a Planned Gift to JCCA and haven’t alerted us of your generous intentions, please do so. Your support qualifies you to be a member of JCCA’s 1822 Society, a group of philanthropic leaders that shares your foresight and generosity.  The 1822 Society provides a way to recognize and thank donors during their lifetime, and ensures that their wishes are properly documented. Members will have a permanent listing in our annual report, and will be included in other special events throughout the year.
