Ways to Give
The simplest and easiest way to support USC Shoah Foundation. Gifts may be made by cash, check, or credit card. Monetary donations are tax deductible in the United States to the full extent allowed by law.
Pledges may be made to USC Shoah Foundation in support of current fundraising campaigns. Pledges traditionally extend over a two to three year period. Payments may be made in cash, check, credit card, or via appreciated securities and are tax deductible in the United States to the full extent allowed by law.
Many individuals and organizations give tribute gifts to USC Shoah Foundation to commemorate events such as anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, or to memorialize a friend or loved one.
USC Shoah Foundation accepts gifts of stock or appreciated securities, whether as a transfer from a portfolio or investment in a corporation. You may achieve significant tax savings by making a gift or pledge payment of appreciated stocks or other capital assets.
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.
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.
In grateful recognition of donor support, naming opportunities are available for various USC Shoah Foundation programs, activities, and facilities.
If you would like additional information regarding naming and funding opportunities as of April 1, 2015, please contact Jayne Perilstein at firstname.lastname@example.org or 213-814-9015.
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.
