2 – Stock and Other Property

Making a gift of securities is an excellent way to support the Forward. It allows you to avoid capital gains on appreciated properties while supporting the Forward’s 119-year-old mission of informing and inspiring our American Jewish citizenry. And it’s easy! There are two simple steps you must complete:

Step 1: Authorize your stock transfer, using the information below:

Amalgamated Bank
Trust Operations Department
275 7th Avenue, 9th Floor
New York, NY 10001
Tel: 212-895-4955
Fax: 212-895-4505

DTC: 2352
Agent Bank Number: 10648
Forward Account: 1001351.1

Step 2: Contact us at 212-453-9454 or by email at development@forward.com once you have made your transfer, and let us know:

  • your name and contact information,
  • the name of the stock,
  • the number of shares, and
  • the date of the transaction.

Thank you, in advance, for your generous support!

3 – Legacy Giving

Making a legacy gift ensures that the Forward will live on as a vital, thriving Jewish media organization, long after we are gone. Just as previous generations of readers helped build the Forward so that we can read and enjoy it today, so too must we make sure that the Forward will be here for future generations to enjoy.

There are many ways to support the Forward through your estate, the simplest and most popular of which is through a bequest in your will. Charitable bequests can eliminate or reduce federal estate taxes and they are one of the most flexible ways of making a legacy gift. Upon request, we are happy to provide sample bequest language to you or your attorney or financial advisor.

There are other types of legacy gifts you may wish to consider, such as a charitable remainder trust, a gift of life insurance, or a gift of retirement plan assets. We are happy to discuss any of those options with you or your attorney or financial advisor.  For further information or questions, please contact Michael Sarid, Chief Development Officer, at (212) 453-9413 or sarid@forward.com.

Please note: The information provided above is not intended to serve as tax or legal advice. Please consult your attorney and/or financial advisor before making a gift. Contributions to the Forward Association are eligible for the maximum income and estate tax charitable deductions available for gifts to a public charity.
