Planned Giving, Legacy Societies, Named Endowments

These gifts have a lasting impact and inspire future generations.


Ways to Give


There are many ways to make a planned gift to the SJMF that may provide benefits to you and the Foundation, including:


• Naming the Foundation in a living will or trust


• Designating life insurance proceeds or donating an insurance policy


• Making the SJMF a beneficiary of your retirement plan, IRA, 401(k), or 203(b)


• Establishing a charitable trust with the SJMF


• Transferring real estate to the SJMF through a life estate

Named Endowments


An endowment fund is a protected investment principal in which withdrawals from the invested capital are used to support general operations, or a specific purpose. The SJMF offers many opportunities to contribute to existing endowments and to establish new named endowments. Gifts of $20,000 or more allow you to establish a permanent endowment fund to support a specific area of interest in perpetuity. Endowment funds may be named for the donor, or for someone the donor wishes to honor or memorialize, creating lasting and meaningful tributes.


Annual Giving Society


The Annual Giving Society honors and recognizes those whose annual giving is equal to, or exceeds $1,000.
