Ways to help

For over 50 years, CJE has been the leading provider of programs and services for older adults, including their families and support network.

There are many ways you can support CJE while letting tax benefits work in your favor. In addition to a single, recurring, tribute, or matching gift from your employer, you can also make a gift by:

  • Granting from a donor-advised fund (DAF). We welcome grants from your donor-advised fund. You may also choose to have any remaining funds distributed after your lifetime by naming CJE as a beneficiary.
  • Giving a Gift of Stock. CJE can also accept gifts of securities, mutual funds, or stocks. Please contact our Senior Systems Analyst, Patty Labak at 773.508.1320 or Patty.Labak@cje.net to learn more about the process.
  • Donating your IRA distribution. Donate any portion of your required 2022 IRA distribution to CJE and it will count toward your minimum distributions for the year. The donated distribution is generally nontaxable.   
  • Leaving your legacy. Adding a bequest to CJE in your will or living trust is a wonderful way to ensure older adults in our community continue to receive life sustaining programs and services. Please contact Stephanie Smerling at 773.508.1130 or Stephanie.Smerling@cje.net to learn more about the process.

Visit cje.net/donate or contact Lisa Weinstock, Director of Development at 773.508.1025 or Lisa.Weinstock@cje.net for all giving inquiries.

We hope you choose CJE to make your year-end gift—in any form—to help older adults live better every day. We appreciate your support.
