Matching Gifts

You may be able to double or even triple your gift to the Shames JCC through your or your spouse’s employer matching gift program. Companies that participate in these programs will provide their employees with matching gift forms to fill out and send to The J along with their contribution or pledge form.

Contributions in Memory or in Honor

Honor someone special, celebrate an occasion or memorialize a loved one with a charitable gift to the Shames JCC. Prompt personal acknowledgments are sent for these (and all!) gifts. When sending a gift in honor or in memory of someone, please include the purpose of the gift and the name and address of the person to be notified in the “Write a Note” section when making your gift online. You can also email this information to [email protected].

Gifts of Stock

Charitable contributions to the J are tax-deductible. However, there is an additional benefit when giving appreciated stock. If you hold marketable securities that would bring a long-term capital gain if sold, their outright gift to The Shames JCC could mean significant tax savings, as you are not required to pay capital gains on the appreciation. Thus, the actual cost to you as a donor is less than the value of your gift. Contact the Development office at 914-847-9001 if you plan to make a gift of appreciated stock.

Planned Gifts (Deferred Giving)

As a long-term method of supporting the Shames Jewish Community Center, planned giving offers a range of options that have benefits for the donor and their family as well as The J. One way of planning a gift is naming The Shames JCC as a beneficiary in one’s will; in planning your estate, you should remember that an outright bequest can reduce the taxation of your estate. If considering a planned gift, please contact the Development office at 914-847-9001 and consult with a tax specialist.

Capital Gifts

These special gifts are made for a particular purpose, such as renovating or building new facilities. We have numerous capital projects underway! Please contact the development office at 914-847-9001 if you are interested in hearing more.
