The Annual Fund

Leading Change Through Testimony

The Annual Fund offers the global community an opportunity to join together in a meaningful way to support USC Shoah Foundation’s mission, programs and goals. Annual Fund donations provide flexible funding to support the Institute’s day-to-day operations and ability to achieve new levels of excellence.

Annual fund donors make an invaluable impact on USC Shoah Foundation by:

  • Sustaining and expanding the Institute’s testimony-based educational programs;
  • Expanding professional development opportunities for educators, including webinars and workshops;
  • Supporting the collection of additional genocide survivor testimonies from around the world;
  • Funding testimony-based research at the Center for Advanced Genocide Research; and
  • Making possible the recruitment of world-class genocide scholars and researchers through Institute fellowships.

Leadership Annual Fund Donors fuel the immediate impact and success of groundbreaking initiatives that support every student, educator, researcher, survivor and friend engaged with the Institute’s work. Leadership donations begin at $1,000 and empower the Institute to say “yes” to innovative programs, research and hands-on learning opportunities for students and educators around the globe.

Whether you are making your first gift or you are a long-time leadership donor, your gift makes a direct impact in building, sustaining and transforming the Institute’s leadership in testimony-based education and research. Thank you!
