Gifts That Reduce Your Taxes

You may receive some tax benefits while supporting Yad Vashem’s crucial efforts to contend with the challenges of keeping the Holocaust relevant for future generations.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding Yad Vashem.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support Yad Vashem.

Stocks & Bonds

This is one of the easiest gifts to give and one of the most useful in accomplishing your philanthropic goals. The next time you visit your bank, you can name American Society for Yad Vashem (Tax ID: 13-3106768) as the beneficiary of a checking or savings bank account, a certificate of deposit (CD), or a brokerage account. When you do, you’ll take a powerful step that confronts denial and indifference.

Gift of Cash

One of the most common ways to make a gift to the American Society for Yad Vashem is to write a check, make a gift using a credit card, or donate online.
