Bequests


Bequests provide a simple way of legacy giving. You name what you want to give to Jen’s Friends in your will. Your bequest can be a specific amount of money, stock, life insurance policy, retirement account, or even a percentage of your estate.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

Charitable remainder trusts are irrevocable trusts that can increase your income, save you taxes, and benefit charities such as Jen's Friends. You and other named individuals receive payments from the trust each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years. At the end of the trust term, the remainder of the trust is then donated to Jen's Friends.


Stock, Funds, and Bonds Donations


You can donate these types of securities to Jen’s Friends:

  • Publicly-traded stocks

  • Privately-held stocks

  • Shares of mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (EFTs)

  • Bonds

No matter which type of appreciated security you donate, your gift goes further than if you sold it and donated the proceeds as cash.


Donating appreciated stocks lets you avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated value and allows you to also claim a tax deduction on the value of the shares that you donated.


If interested in donating any of these types of securities, then email us and request Jen's Friends donor account and brokerage information. Then contact your brokerage to get the necessary donation forms.


Life Insurance Policies


Name Jen’s Friends as the direct beneficiary of a life insurance policy and avoid estate taxes. Contact your insurance provider for instructions on how to name Jen’s Friends as a beneficiary.

Designate Jen’s Friends as a beneficiary for all or part of your retirement accounts (e.g., 401(k), IRAs, annuities, pension plans, etc.). Contact the administrator of the retirement account for instructions on how to designate Jen’s Friends as a beneficiary.
