Planned Giving and Endowment

Planned Giving

You can can help guarantee that your commitment to ISEF’s mission and work extends beyond your lifetime!
Planning your estate offers a wonderful chance to remember the bright but disadvantaged young Israelis whose lives are transformed each year thanks to ISEF.
A charitable bequest to the ISEF Foundation can be as easy as adding this statement to your will:
I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to the Israel Scholarship Education Foundation, currently located at 520 Eighth Avenue, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10018, (_______ percent of my estate; or the sum of $ _______ ) to be held and administered by the ISEF Foundation Board of Directors for the purpose of supporting ISEF’s deserving scholarship students and programs.
Other estate planning options include donating a life insurance policy to ISEF.  This option enables our supporters to make a more significant contribution to ISEF than would be possible during their lifetime. If  generating a major gift for ISEF from a relatively small financial commitment fits into your plans, you could either gift an existing life insurance policy to ISEF — or consider purchasing a separate new policy with ISEF as the beneficiary.
If you wish to make a planned gift to ISEF, please consult your legal and financial advisors. For more information, please contact Dmitry Shimelfarb, Director of Development, at 212-683-7772.

Named Endowment Fund

ISEF has several named endowment funds whose revenues support both general operating funds, and specific programs run by ISEF.  The minimum donation to establish a named endowment fund, in honor or memory of a loved one or in your own name, is $100,000.  ISEF maintains a special board committee which oversees the investment of the foundation’s endowment funds, and the family making the donation will receive an annual accounting of income and expenditures.
