Planned Giving

You can support the Museum while realizing significant financial and tax benefits for yourself and your family by making a planned gift to the National Museum of American Jewish History. There are a number of ways to support the Museum through planned giving, including a bequest, life income gifts through an annuity or trust, gifts of IRA and retirement funds and donation of assets such as life insurance, real estate, art and jewelry. Planned gifts can truly be a “win-win” scenario for you and the Museum; they can enable you to enhance your income and reduce your taxes while also allowing you to permanently support the Museum’s important mission, including opportunities to create a fund in your name or in the name of a loved one.

You do not have to be wealthy to leave a lasting legacy at the Museum. Planned gifts can be as simple as including a bequest provision for the Museum in your will or naming the Museum as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. Your planned gift, no matter the size, will help the Museum to preserve precious artifacts, present thought-provoking exhibitions and offer diverse educational and cultural programs for future generations. And in so doing, you will help the Museum tell the inspiring story of the American Jewish experience.

For more information on how you may support the Museum by making a planned gift, please contact Cobi Weissbach, Director of Development, at 215-923-3811, ext. 131, or via e-mail at And if you have already included NMAJH in your financial and/or estate plans, please let us know so that we may be sure to express our gratitude for your foresight and generosity!
