Devine Fund for Jefferson Health New Jersey Employee Assistance
Members of our Jefferson Health New Jersey family have a long history of generosity and support of the Devine Fund for Jefferson Health New Jersey Employee Assistance, which provides financial assistance to employees undergoing hardships. At Jefferson Health New Jersey we work together, side-by-side, every day to improve lives. Supporting each other in times of need strengthens us so we can better care for the communities we serve.
Disasters – financial or physical – can happen to all of us, at any time. That’s when the Devine Fund for Jefferson Health New Jersey Employee Assistance can help. When an associate loses their home in a fire, faces the sudden loss of a spouse and insurmountable funeral costs, or can no longer keep up with a sick child’s medical bills – the Devine Fund is there to relieve them of their financial burden and help them get back on their feet. Grants are determined by a caring committee of associates, and all applications are handled with the strictest level of confidence and respect.
Supporting our fellow associates is simple. Choose a payroll deduction plan for the year by contributing as little as $5 each paycheck, or decide to make a one-time donation of $25 or more. Small acts of generosity really add up.
Payroll Deduction: To get started, log in to PeopleSoft and select “Employee Giving.” If you wish to give to a specific campus, search the hospital’s name to populate non-enterprise funds.
Check: Please make checks payable to “Jefferson” and include your gift designation in the memo line. Gifts may be hand delivered, or mailed to:
Jefferson Health Foundation – New Jersey, 1099 White Horse Road, Voorhees, NJ 08043
Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds
If you own stock, it is sometimes wiser to contribute stock rather than cash, as a gift of appreciated stock generally offers a two-fold tax advantage:
- You avoid paying capital gains tax on the increased value of the stock
- You receive an income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock at the time of the gift
For example, if you purchased stock years ago for $1,000 that is now worth $10,000, an outright gift of the stock would result in a charitable deduction of $10,000. In addition, there is no tax on the $9,000 appreciation in value.
If you have owned stock for more than a year, you qualify for these significant tax advantages. Your gift must be postmarked by December 31 to qualify for a deduction in that tax year. A stockbroker or trust officer also can arrange for a year-end gift of stock from your account.
Transferring stock to Jefferson or have questions? Email Sarah Staley at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, contact information, stock name, and number of shares. We will provide you with instructions for your broker.
Making a planned gift is an excellent way to support Jefferson while obtaining long-term financial benefits for you and your family. Staff in our Department of Planned Giving can help you choose from the giving options that also produce income for you.
Significant tax advantages can be associated with income-producing gifts, such as an immediate charitable income tax deduction, an avoidance of immediate capital gains taxes upon the sale of appreciated assets, and eventual estate tax savings. Please contact Lisa Repko, JD, at email@example.com or 215-955-0437 for individual advice on your particular situation.
If you are a Jefferson faculty or staff member, you can make a gift to the university or hospital through your paycheck. Simply log in to PeopleSoft and select “Employee Giving” to get started. If you wish to give to a specific campus, search the hospital’s name to populate non-enterprise funds.
