Annual Giving

Annual gifts are given to the areas of greatest need, impacting virtually everything at the Institute. Annual gifts enable SFI to provide resources not initially covered. Unrestricted gifts are among the most valuable to the Institute because they allow funds to be generated wherever the need is greatest, and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise.

Call our Advancement office at (213) 821-9337 or email us to learn more about annual giving.

Planned Giving

Donors may wish to consider giving through such vehicles as life insurance, bequests, testamentary gifts, charitable trusts, annuities and partnership opportunities. Planned giving can be an ideal way to leave a legacy to the Institute and minimize your income, gift, and estate taxes.

Corporate Giving

Through contributions of in-kind donations and cash grants, corporations of all kinds and sizes have been instrumental at every stage of USC Shoah Foundation’s growth and success. Many businesses meet their philanthropic goals by contributing to causes their employees support. An employer with a matching gift program may contribute an equal amount or more when an employee makes a donation.
