The greatest way to create a lasting legacy is by touching the lives of others.
Through Hadassah, donors make a commitment to and to the Jewish people. With Hadassah, they touch hundreds of thousands of lives; not only Jews, but to all who are in need and for the betterment of humankind.
Whether you make a pledge to our annual appeal, create a long-term giving plan, or pick up the phone and call on others to contribute their support to Hadassah, you can make a difference. There are many ways to help support the work of Hadassah, both locally and nationally.

Hadassah is committed to making a difference in the world through our five projects:
NATIONAL GIFT LEVELS
- MAJOR GIFTS
In recognition of a major gift ($5,000+) to Hadassah, your name or the name of a loved one will be linked in perpetuity to Israel on a magnificent recognition device at one of Hadassah's outstanding institutions. In addition, you will receive a beautiful, hand-calligraphied certificate, designed by a renowned Jewish artist. Certain levels of giving will also be acknowledged with pins, objects d'art, and recognition in Hadassah House in New York City. Most important of all, you will be an integral part of Hadassah's life-enhancing work around the world and a cherished member of the family of major donors.

Keepers of the Gate are a prestigious group of women and men throughout the country who agree to make a $1,000 annual contribution to Hadassah for as long as they are able. Gifts may be designated to the specific Hadassah project that best reflects your interests or passions.
