Legacy gifts ensure the financial strength of San Diego Jewish Academy for future generations by creating a perpetual stream of revenue for the school. Donors creating endowments, planned gifts or bequests become SDJA Legacy Circle members and their names are inscribed on the Pillars of Honor. SDJA is undertaking this initiative in conjunction with the Jewish Community Foundation’s Create a Jewish Legacy Program. Endowments are established funds set aside in perpetuity to provide long-term revenue. They can be unrestricted, allowing SDJA maximum flexibility in determining funding priorities, or they can be restricted to fund a specific field of interest. Endowments begin at $5,000. Gifts over $100,000 are eligible to become named funds. Planned gifts enable donors to maximize their support to SDJA while realizing personal, financial and tax benefits. They can include such vehicles as Charitable Gift Annuities, Lead Trusts, Remainder Trusts and gifts of Life Insurance. Bequests are gifts that become available after the donor’s lifetime and simply require the donor to name SDJA in their wills, designating either a specific gift amount or a percentage or share of the remaining estate.
