Appreciated Securities

Donating appreciated assets can offer significant tax advantages. Donations of appreciated, publicly traded securities are one of the most tax-wise methods. The most common forms of these assets are shares of stock, bonds, and mutual funds. For more information about transferring appreciated assets, click below:

Make a Pledge

Put in writing the amount you plan to give during a fiscal year (July 1 to July 30).  NCJW will send quarterly reminders through the year and monthly reminders in the spring leading up to the end of the fiscal year on June 30th.  One cannot make a pledge for donations through donor advised funds.  An email or written notification may be sent to staff or a member of the Board of Trustees.

IRA Contribution

Annual withdrawals from traditional retirement accounts are required after age 70½, and the penalty for skipping a required minimum distribution is 50 percent of the amount that should have been withdrawn. By donating money from your IRA directly to NCJW you can avoid income tax on required withdrawals. For more information about IRA contributions, click here.

Life Insurance Beneficiary

Gifts of life insurance are as simple as naming NCJW Inc. as a beneficiary of a new or existing policy.  Life insurance policies can have multiple beneficiaries.  This gift is very straightforward and NCJW will receive funds immediately upon termination of the policy. 

Please send an email to NCJW Development at so we may keep a record or this gift in your donor record with the following information:

  • Life Insurance Company Address and Phone Number
  • Donor Name
  • Intended Purpose, if the donation is for a specific fund or campaign
