Planned Giving

Many planned gifts cost you nothing now, there’s no minimum contribution, and you’re not locked into a decision you make today. When you include JED in your estate planning, you make a powerful gift while meeting your needs and serving your family’s well-being. There are many options for including JED in your estate planning:

Designate JED as a beneficiary in your 401k or other retirement account, will, individual or family trust, life insurance policy, or a portion of your retirement balance to JED as a charitable contribution. We’ve partnered with FreeWill to make this process easy for you. Learn more about designating JED as a beneficiary. Write your will or learn more about designating JED as a beneficiary in your will.

The Jed Foundation is recognized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
