Donate Now!

Donor-Advised Funds

Using an existing donor-advised fund at Fidelity, Vanguard, or another institution is a straightforward way to leave a gift to JVS. You can also establish a Donor Advised Fund through Combined Jewish Philanthropies.

You can name JVS as the beneficiary of a percentage of your remaining DAF balance. Since the funds are already held in a charitable fund, there is no need to use a will or trust to fulfill your legacy gift intention.

IRA Distributions

People who are age 70 ½ or older can make charitable contributions directly from their IRA. This distribution counts toward your Required Minimum Distribution; you may contribute up to $100,000 annually, and also avoid paying income taxes on the distribution. This qualified charitable distribution is limited to IRAs, and there are other exclusions and considerations as well.

Donating Stock

JVS Boston accepts donations of stock or other securities. When you contribute a security that you’ve owned for more than a year, you are eligible to receive a charitable tax deduction for its full market value. Giving stock or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds, is simple to do via electronic transfer. You or your stock broker can transfer all DTC eligible securities to:

J.P. Morgan Securities Account

Jewish Vocational Service, Inc.

JVS Boston Account Number: xxx-41434 T23

DTC Number: 352

A JVS Volunteer and his Students


“I was pleased to know that I could use the RMD of my IRA to make a gift to a cause I believed in. As a volunteer in the Adult Diploma Pathway program here at JVS, I see the good work happening in classrooms every day; I’m happy to support this cause in a way that also makes good tax sense.”

- Wayne, JVS Volunteer 


Catherine Bromberg"I can't say enough about how much I believe in the mission and the amazing things that JVS does every day. Each time I visit, I hear a new story about how an inspiring client has found a new job, or how dedicated JVS staff members are working with classes throughout Boston to help change people's lives. . . . When my husband and I did our estate planning, it was a priority to provide for our three children. We also wanted to give back, and make sure that we were able to continue our support of JVS. We worked together with our estate planner to put together a legacy gift. Now we know that even after we are no longer involved with JVS, our values will live on."
