Retirement Plans / Wills / Bequests

There could be no better way to support Jewish Education than by leaving a legacy gift for Providence Hebrew Day School. Many of these types of gifts enable you to avoid income and estate taxes. You can simply add the following language below, or add the school as a beneficiary of your retirement plan. Your gift to Jewish education is a gift to Jewish survival. It leaves a legacy of your commitment to Jewish education to the entire community.

Sample bequest language:

“I give, devise and bequeath to the Providence Hebrew Day School, a Rhode Island charitable corporation, the sum of $___________ / % of my estate (or a decryption of a specific asset) for the benefit of Providence Hebrew Day School or its general purposes".

Please contact Rabbi Peretz Scheinerman for endowment opportunities (above)

Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA)

This type of fund is for those who seek guaranteed income for life while also leaving a charitable legacy. By establishing a CGA fund, you receive a monthly distribution at a high rate of return based on age, and you also receive a charitable tax deduction. The remaining funds are used to perpetuate a gift to the school for the many years to come. To set up a Charitable Gift Annuity please contact Rabbi Peretz Scheinerman, Dean at 401-331-5327 #21 or [email protected].

The Providence Hebrew Day School Endowment Fund is managed by the Jewish Alliance of Rhode Island. While investments decreased for the fiscal year 2009, this year has been a good year for the PHDS Endowment Fund, with excellent returns. A gift to the Endowment Fund is an excellent way to perpetuate the memory of a loved one and to guarantee the ongoing financial success of the school.
