  – What constitutes ‘legacy giving’? 

Legacy giving typically includes Bequests, life insurance policies, IRAs, real estate, cash, stocks, and a percentage of the estate.

  • Wills, Bequests, and Living Trusts are the most popular types of legacy giving. In their wills, donors will name what they wish to give/leave Shurat HaDin- funds, stocks, a piece of art, etc. Donors may also give Shurat HaDin a property they own (real estate) while retaining the right to use it during their lifetime.
  • Beneficiary Gifts Through Insurances (for example, in a life insurance policy). Naming Shurat HaDin as a (primary/contingent) beneficiary is a simple and powerful way to support our work without updating your will. 
  • Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) are tax-deferred retirement plans. Donors can name Shurat HaDin as a beneficiary or recipient of a percentage of the proceeds. 


How will I know what impact my contribution would make? 

Whether you’re interested in supporting our internship program, advocacy seminars, missions, the fight against BDS, war crime allegations, blocking terror funding, or filing civil lawsuits seeking compensation for terror victims, with legacy giving, you can specify how your gift will be spent. This way, you can rest assured that your legacy will be preserved as you want. 


Are there any tax benefits involved?

Legacy giving typically includes numerous tax benefits you can bring to your family.
