Legacy and Planned Giving

An important and lasting way to support Denver Academy of Torah is to include the school in your estate plan. DAT’s legacy gifts are invested in order to support our long-term efforts for building an even stronger foundation for the school.

We are excited to announce that Denver Academy of Torah has been selected to participate — along with 27 other local Jewish organizationsin Live On | LIFE & LEGACY™, a program that supports Jewish organizations in securing legacy gifts.  

Live On: Build Your Jewish Legacy, an initiative of Rose Community Foundation, and LIFE & LEGACY™, a partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, have joined together to strengthen the Greater Denver/Boulder Jewish communities by encouraging endowment building and legacy giving. Live On | LIFE & LEGACY™ provides training, support, and incentive grants to  the participating organizations to encourage legacy gift solicitations and donor commitments that will benefit Jewish organizations for future generations.

If you would like to learn more about making a legacy gift through Live On | LIFE & LEGACY™ please be in touch with Director of Development and Marketing Emily Dauber at edauber@datcampus.org.

There are several ways to leave a legacy gift to DAT, including:

Bequests

The simplest way to ensure that you provide for the people and charitable institutions that you hold dear is to make provisions for them in your will. (Learn more: What is a bequest?)

Endowments

Memorialize a loved one, honor a special person in your life, or perpetuate your family’s name by creating a designated endowment.

Securities

Donate appreciated long-term securities, avoid tax on appreciation, and receive a tax deduction equal to the current market value of the stock.

Life Insurance

Take out a policy for DAT and receive a tax deduction for premium paymentsor donate policies whose protection you no longer need and receive an immediate tax deduction.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Receive guaranteed income for lifeor two livesat a generous payout rate and the balance will benefit DAT.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

Pays you income during your lifetime with substantial tax deductions; DAT is the recipient of the remainder at the end of the trust term. (Learn more: What is a charitable remainder trust?)

Charitable Lead Trusts

Donate part of your estate to a trust now and the income goes into a fund you set up for DAT. This reduces estate taxes and the remainder goes to your heirs. (Learn more: What is a charitable lead trust?)
