Your Gift Can Last Forever

Your legacy gift made to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum endowment will be professionally managed and invested, becoming a permanent source of income to sustain the Museum’s powerful combination of cutting edge scholarship, innovative educational outreach and global impact.

An Example of How It Works

Longtime supporters Susan and David have two goals: First, they want to make sure the Museum continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize David's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Cohen.

Susan and David make a $25,000 donation to the Museum, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Cohens. Plus, Susan and David qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
