Education Changes Lives

Make a Gift that Make a Difference

The generosity of our community enables the BJE to provide Jewish education locally and across the globe. Your donation makes a difference by helping to ensure high-quality Jewish education for the next generation who learn in our Early Childhood Centers and for educators to find the best professional development with The BJE’s initiatives enhance quality, increase access, and encourage participation in Jewish education.

Ways to Give

Donating to the BJE is easy, and there are a variety of ways in which you can do so.

Legacy/Planned Giving

One way to ensure future financial security for the BJE is through legacy gifts and bequests to our endowment. A legacy gift (specified through estate planning) enables an individual to leave a bequest in the future without tapping or committing current assets. Through legacy giving, we can ensure that our organization will be as strong for future generations as it is for our children and educators today. The Board of Jewish Education will recognize all donors who participate in our endowment or who designate a charitable gift through a bequest or planned gift, regardless of the size of the donation. Planned giving enables members of our community to make strategic contributions through bequests, living trusts, or gifts that provide benefits during a supporter’s life and the life of a loved one.
