Gift of a Bank Account When No Longer Needed (POD)

Gift of a Bank Account When No Longer Needed (POD)
Leonard has been a faithful supporter of American Jewish University and makes regular gifts to support our work. Recently, Leonard talked to our staff and expressed his interest in naming American Jewish University as a beneficiary of his estate, but he wanted to keep the process as simple and inexpensive as possible.

Leonard: I love volunteering at American Jewish University. It really gives me a sense of joy and fulfillment. I not only support the organization with my time, I try to make annual gifts as well. As a donor, I want to leave a meaningful gift to American Jewish University in my estate plan.

One day, Leonard talked to Sharon, another one of our volunteers. Sharon told Leonard that she recently made a "payable on death" or "POD" gift to American Jewish University. Leonard asked Sharon to explain how the gift works. Sharon told Leonard that he could contact his bank or credit union and request a POD beneficiary designation form. By filling out the form and sending it back to his credit union, Leonard could direct the credit union to pay the balance of any account he designates to charity when he passes away.

Leonard: Sharon shared a lot of great information about POD gifts. I decided to name American Jewish University as the payable on death beneficiary of two accounts at my bank. Not only was the process simple - it didn't cost a thing. I also liked that a POD gift gives me flexibility-I still own the accounts and can use the money if my needs ever change.

Is a payable on death (POD) gift right for you?


If you would like to leave a gift to American Jewish University that is simple, inexpensive and flexible if your needs change, please consider a payable on death bequest. If you have questions or would like to learn more about POD beneficiary gifts, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you and answer any questions that you have.
