Major Gifts

Hadassah has created countless giving opportunities to help our most generous contributors find a level of giving that is right for them. 


In recognition of a Major Gift ($5000+) to Hadassah, your name or the name of a loved one will be linked in perpetuity to Israel on the appropriate recognition wall at one of Hadassah’s outstanding institutions of your choice. 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, object d’art, and recognition at 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.
