Planned Giving

Ensure DOROT’s programs continue for years to come with a legacy gift.

DOROT’s legacy is built every day by caring for seniors and making meaningful intergenerational relationships. Your legacy at DOROT is easier to create than you may think.


You can have a lasting impact on the lives of older adults through long-range financial planning in one of these ways:


YOUR WILL – Include DOROT in your will or living trust. This can be as simple as writing one sentence in your will or trust. Your gift can be modified throughout your lifetime, as circumstances change. Contact us to request sample wording to share with your attorney.


YOUR RETIREMENT PLAN – Name DOROT as a beneficiary of a qualified retirement account or IRA. As a nonprofit organization, DOROT bypasses any taxes and receives the full amount of your gift. Contact your plan administrator or custodian to name DOROT as beneficiary.


YOUR LIFE INSURANCE – Designate DOROT as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy you once bought, perhaps to protect the financial stability of your family. Have your circumstances changed, with the original purpose of protection no longer an issue? You can name DOROT as a policy beneficiary, and we will use your gift to support future generations.


To discuss any of these options or to let us know that you have already included DOROT in your plans, please contact Dorothy Kauffman, Chief Advancement Officer, at (917) 441-3746. Your legacy support qualifies you to be a member of DOROT's Generations Society, a group of philanthropic leaders with the foresight and generosity to impact the future of DOROT's programming.
