Make a Planned Gift
What is a Planned Gift? You are already familiar with the need to steward your personal resources as you plan for your family, your career and retirement. Planned giving is a form of stewardship that allows you to benefit yourself and loved ones and support the mission of Preservation New Jersey.

Planned gifts can provide you with important income and estate tax benefits and in some cases a source of income for life. Common types of planned gifts include:

  • Bequest in your Will or from a revocable trust (see below)
  • Naming PNJ as a beneficiary of retirement assets or life insurance. more info>>
  • Gifts in kind of appreciated property, including real estate and securities
  • Gifts of partial interests in real estate, including a remainder interest or a preservation easement on your home.

Charitable trusts that benefit yourself and PNJ
A gift from your estate . . .
Is the simplest way to support PNJ’s mission. A bequest in your Will, or a distribution at death from your revocable trust can be made using the following language:

Sample language for a bequest: “I devise the sum of [dollar amount] to PRESERVATION NEW JERSEY, INC., Trenton, New Jersey, for its general uses and purposes.”

How will PNJ use my gift?
Unless you specifically direct otherwise, your planned gift to PNJ will be added to our endowment fund. Although PNJ appreciates all planned gifts, we encourage unrestricted gifts that allow PNJ to support its programs as identified by its Board of Directors.

If you wish to make a gift for a specific purpose, or you would like to give an interest in real property, please call PNJ at 609.392.6409 and speak with our Senior Programs Director, Stephanie L. Cherry-Farmer.
