One of the best ways to leave a meaningful legacy is through your will.
By making a bequest in your will to JF&CS, you can provide food for the home-bound elderly and home care services, scholarships to camp for children, and funds for the many services we provide to the community without charge.
There are three types of bequests you can make in your will:
1) A Specific Bequest - These give a specified item or piece of property to JF&CS. These are filled first, before any other elements in a will.
2) A Cash Bequest - These provide JF&CS or a specified agency program with a specific sum of money. These are filled second.
3) A Residuary Bequest - These are made from what remains in one’s estate after bequests, taxes, settlement costs, and debts are paid.
We can help your good name live on.

The easiest way to donate stock to JF&CS is to have your broker call our office at (732) 774-6886 x 14. We will take care of everything and send you a letter of thanks, acknowledging your contribution which you can use for tax purposes.
Your planned gift, given to JF&CS now, ensures that local Monmouth County residents will be served well into the future.
Planned giving options include:
Outright Gifts of Cash, Securities, or Appreciated Property - A direct contribution of cash, stock or property is the easiest way to make a planned gift. You can choose any of our 30 programs for your contribution and you will receive credit in our Newsletter (and, of course, a receipt for your donation).
Named Funds - An outright gift or a pledge of $25,000 or more will endow a "named fund" at JF&CS, which gives you the opportunity to honor your family or someone you love in a significant and meaningful way.
Life Insurance - You can transfer ownership of a life insurance policy to JF&CS- or make JF&CS the named beneficiary of the life insurance policy. This is one of the most affordable ways to guarantee a sizable legacy to the agency.
Life Income Gifts - Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts or Unitrusts give you the security of a fixed, predictable income during your lifetime - with the remaining assets directed to support the good work of the JF&CS for years to come. There may also be tax benefits (see your own tax adviser for information and guidance).
