Other Methods of Donating to Hadassah

A Gift to Hadassah Through A Life Insurance Policy

You can name Hadassah as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, If Hadassah is named as owner and beneficiary of a current policy, and you continue to pay the yearly premiums, you can claim income tax deductions for those premiums.


If your family does not need the proceeds of a fully paid-up insurance policy, consider choosing Hadassah as the outright beneficiary.


Federal and state income and estate taxes may reduce a significant portion, often more than a half, of the funds in your Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and other retirement plans when those are left to a non-spouse. You, and your heirs, could benefit from designating Hadassah as the beneficiary of these retirement funds, or a portion thereof, while you leave other assets to your heirs.

Hadassah is committed to strengthening the unity of the Jewish people. In Israel, we accomplish this through progressive healthcare, education, youth institutions, volunteerism, and land reclamation. In the U.S. we reach our goals through Jewish and Zionist education programs, Zionist Youth programs, and health awareness programs, as well as by advocating for issues of importance to women and to the American Jewish community.
