Giving to the CJL

Support Jewish Life at Princeton

Throughout their college years, Jewish students grapple with choices that will shape their identity and define their future. The CJL is ideally positioned to make a positive difference. We invite you to partner with us and make an investment in a vibrant Jewish future.

Over 80% of the CJL’s annual operating budget is funded by contributions by alumni, parents, the community, and friends like you. By making a gift to the CJL, you will be joining over 1,000 contributors each year who make an impact on the lives of Jewish students at Princeton.

Note to alumni:  Class gifts are unrestricted contributions to the university. Gifts made to the CJL cannot count as a class gift but will be counted as part of your total giving to Princeton.

Tribute Giving: Honor a friend or family member or send a condolence to someone in memory of their loved one. Simply send a check or submit an online donation, let us know the reason for the gift, the note you would like to include, and where we should send the Tribute Card.  We will send the card on your behalf to the recipient.

Gifts of Securities: Making a gift of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds) to the CJL is easy and has special tax benefits for the donor. The university provides guidelines for making gifts of stock to Princeton to benefit the CJL. Please note that the instruction letter to your broker should clearly indicate that proceeds from the sale of securities should be designated to support the Center for Jewish Life. For more information, contact Robin Rudofker, Development Director.

Matching Gifts: Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match contributions made to the CJL by their employees or their employees’ spouses. For details about matching gifts, please visit the University website.
