Make A Gift to BJE
When you give a gift to the BJE, you make our work possible. Your support provides the opportunity for the next generation of children to learn in our Early Childhood Centers and allows JTeach.org to engage educators and families across our globe.
Ways to Give
Donating to the BJE is easy and there are a variety of ways in which you can do so.
01. Online Giving
You can make a gift online at our secure website by clicking here
02. Legacy/Planned Giving
One way to ensure future financial security for the BJE is through legacy gifts and bequests to our endowment.
A legacy gift (specified through estate planning) enables an individual to leave a bequest in the future without tapping or committing current assets. Through legacy giving, we can ensure that our organization will be as strong for future generations as it is for our children and educators today.
The Board of Jewish Education will recognize all donors who participate in our endowment or who designate a charitable gift through a bequest or planned gift, regardless of the size of the donation. Planned giving enables members of our community to make strategic contributions through bequests, living trust, or gifts that provide benefits during a supporter’s life and the life of a loved one.
03. Cash Gifts
Your check, made payable to Board of Jewish Education, may be mailed to:
3320 Dundee Road, Northbrook, IL 60015. We also accept Visa and MasterCard.
04. Matching Gifts
Employers frequently match their employees’ charitable gifts. This is a quick way to double (or more!) the value of your support. Check with your Human Resources office for forms or instructions.
05. Recurring Gifts
If you would like to make a gift on an ongoing basis, or make regularly scheduled pledge payments, you may do so conveniently through our Recurring Gift program. Recurring gifts can be set up with a credit card or electronic funds transfer.
06. Tribute Gifts
You can support the BJE and commemorate life cycle events through the Tribute Gift Program. Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, births, graduations, memorials, or to acknowledge special achievements.
07. Naming the BJE as a Beneficiary in Your Estate Planning
