Planned Giving

PJA's Life & Legacy/Dor L'Dor Society

Please remember PJA in your will, trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy.

Supporting Portland Jewish Academy through a bequest or other planned gift entitles you to become a member of our Planned Giving or Dor l'Dor Society.

PJA is one of eleven organizations in Oregon participating in Oregon Jewish Community Foundation’s Life & Legacy program, funded by the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

Stacey (PJA/Hillel Alumna, Class of 1987) & Marshal Oller
(PJA Life & Legacy Members, Current Parents).

“PJA is so much more than outstanding academics; it is where students learn to use their knowledge to effect change in the world. Igniting passions while inspiring hearts is no small endeavor, and it is what lies at the core of a PJA education. Supporting today’s students helps carry this light into the world; joining the Dor L’Dor Society by making a legacy gift through the Life & Legacy initiative ensures that future generations will grow this light exponentially.”

What is Planned Giving?

Planned giving, sometimes referred to as gift planning, is a way anyone can support PJA today, and in the future. By definition, a planned gift is any typically larger gift, made in one’s lifetime or at death, as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Some planned gifts provide a life-long income to you, the donor. Others use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charity and your heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on your estate. Whether you use cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, etc., the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both you and PJA.

How a planned gift is different from an Annual Fund gift?
Gifts to our annual fund or for the auction are made from your discretionary income. They may be budgeted for, but they are not planned by philanthropic definition.

Three types of planned gifts
1. Outright gifts that use appreciated assets as a substitute for cash;
2. Gifts that return income or other financial benefits to you in return for your contribution; and
3. Gifts payable upon a donor’s death.

If you are interested in receiving more information about planned gifts to PJA and the Dor l'Dor Society, please contact Steve Albert, Executive Director at 503.535.3592 for more information.
