Ways to Give:
Donation of stocks is a particularly beneficial way to make a charitable donation as the donor does not pay any capital gains tax on the sale of the stock gift. In addition, donors can take an immediate income tax deduction for the current fair market value of the asset—regardless of the amount originally paid for the security! What a win-win situation—good for the Edlavitch DCJCC and good for the donor.
It is simple to make gifts of appreciated securities to the Edlavitch DCJCC. Your financial services provider can transfer them electronically to the Center’s account. United Brokerage Services is working with the Edlavitch DCJCC to handle stock transactions. Our account number is 8806-6932 and the DTC (for electronic transfers) is 0141. Our contact person is Kyle Sullivan at United Brokerage Services – (202) 686-3600, ext. 1489.
When you’ve finalized the transfer, please notify the Advancement Department, informing us of the name of the stock and number of shares to be transferred to the Edlavitch DCJCC.
Your gift could be matched dollar for dollar! Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, or even triple, a donation’s value. Check with your employer to find out if your company will match your contribution to the Edlavitch DCJCC, a certified 501(C)(3) organization.
Once you have determined that your company does match donations made to the Edlavitch DCJCC, obtain the appropriate form from your Personnel/Human Resources office and send it along with your gift, or a receipt of your gift if donating online, to:

Consider making the committment of a planned gift to the Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center
Many donors express an interest in placing the Edlavitch DCJCC as a beneficiary in wills or life insurance policies. There are numerous planned giving vehicles and combinations that allow a donor or financial planner to specially tailor a gift.
Planned giving allows both the donor and the organization to construct the best financial plan for all involved. The Edlavitch DCJCC is sincerely grateful to individuals who seek to make a difference beyond their lifetimes.
To commemorate special occasions—the birth of a child or grandchild, birthdays, graduation, anniversaries, weddings, bar or bat Mitzvahs, or to perpetuate the memory of a loved one—the Edlavitch DCJCC welcomes tax-deductible gifts to the Annual Fund, one of our current endowment or special funds, or one of the Center’s many excellent programs.
A card is sent, in your name, to the person you are honoring—or in the case of a memorial gift, to the family or whomever you indicate when you make your gift and we will send a formal acknowledgement to you as well.
Support the Edlavitch DCJCC through the United Way/Combined Federal Campaign!
One of the easiest ways to support the Community Service programs of the Center is by donating through United Way. When you complete your United Way or Combined Federal Campaign Form, please designate the Edlavitch DCJCC (Agency #8125, Combined Federal Campaign #54775) as a gift recipient.
Designate #54775 for the Edlavitch District of Columbia Jewish Community Center (Agency #8125).
Donating your car, truck, boat, RV or van will spare you the time and expense of dealing with an unwanted vehicle while assisting the Edlavitch DCJCC in offering a full range of arts and cultural opportunities, education and classes, and volunteer activities and services to benefit the entire DC area.
Vehicle donation is easy and convenient: it provides taxpayers who itemize with a tax deduction for the fair market value of their vehicle, and the transportation company comes directly to your home or office to remove the donated vehicle, at no cost to you. The value of your vehicle as a donated item will exceed the amount you could receive on it as a trade-in. Free pick-up. Tax-deductible.
