Make an outright gift to Jewish Senior

Life

Foundation.

Your annual gift to the Jewish Senior

Life

Annual Fund provides an essential bridge between private and government

revenues and the full cost of delivering the programs and services that create meaningful lives.

Every gift to the Annual Fund makes a difference, no matter the size. Last year, more than 1,400 donors collectively

gave more than $400,000 to the Annual Fund. It would take close to an additional $8 million in endowment to

generate the same level of funding for resident programming in a single year.

Make your gift of cash online, mail or by phone. Consider a leadership gift of $500 or more and be recognized

in the Golden Alliance.

Request a distribution from your qualified donor advised fund or charitable checking account.

Learn if your employer will match your financial gift.

Take advantage of a qualifed IRA rollover distribution.

If you are 70-

1/2

, you may rollover up to $100,000 from an IRA directly to Jewish Senior

Life

Foundation.

The rollover may count against your required minimum distribution. The transfer does not generate taxable

income, and you pay no federal income tax on the amount that has been transferred.

Consider donating your appreciated stock.

You may receive a charitable income tax deduction and pay no capital gains tax if your gift is made with

appreciated stock held for more than one year.

Donating appreciated stock to make an annual gift, pay a campaign pledge or create a permanently endowed fund

is an excellent way to maximize tax savings and execute your philanthropic goals.

Please let us know in advance if you plan to transfer stock so that we may monitor the transaction and let you

know when it has been executed.
