Sustainers Society

Your personal legacy to the communities we serve

Our Planned Giving Program called the Sustainers Society, recognizes supporters who want to leave a meaningful, personal legacy of caring for the many communities MJHS serves: the frail elderly, chronically ill, and those confronting the end of life, even children.

Planned Giving

Leaving a gift through your will or estate plan is a simple, powerful way to keep your compassion and generosity alive. Your gift ensures that the great patient-centered work of MJHS will continue, beyond your own lifetime and long into the future.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Help MJHS in the future while you receive financial benefits during your lifetime. You can leave a charitable gift annuity through the UJA-Federation of New York on behalf of MJHS.

In return for your donation you can receive a lifetime annuity in the form of a fixed amount of income payable to you or a love one. If you are interested in making a Charitable Gift, please contact us at 212-356-5300.


Gifts of Stock, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Your financial planner, estate attorney or personal accountant is the best person to advise you about the potential benefits of gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you or your agent.

Appreciated Stocks and Bonds
You may choose to make a contribution to MJHS Foundation of appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, that will provide you with capital gains tax savings and allow you to claim an income tax charitable deduction, while supporting our mission to provide access to health, supportive and community based-services across the continuum of need.

Mutual Fund Shares

Contributions may also be made from mutual fund accounts by writing a letter of instruction to your mutual fund stating the number of shares being given to MJHS Foundation; the timing of the gift; and the name of the account from which the shares are coming.

Always seek guidance from a professional advisor when considering making a gift of stocks and bonds.


A bequest are gifts that are made as part of a will or trust. In order to make a bequest you need to leave instructions, typically in a will. There are many different types of bequests, each with its own benefits. Usually the first step in setting up a bequest is to consult your estate-planning attorney and involve your financial planner.
