Major Gifts

No museum can survive on just membership, entrance fees and general donations.

The Sydney Jewish Museum relies on the support of generous donors to make a major gift to the Museum as a lasting contribution for the benefit of future generations. Major gifts also serve to perpetuate a donor’s family name or honour a loved one.

Major gifts ensure that the Sydney Jewish Museum can continue and grow its valuable work in educating, fighting racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism, opposing bullying, condemning intolerance and denouncing genocide.

Major gift opportunities include

*Bequests * Endowments * Living legacies and * Life tenancy/home conversions

Simple Wills or agreements, in favour of the Sydney Jewish Museum, may be drawn up by our honorary solicitor at no cost to the benefactor.

Everyone, regardless of age, should make a Will. Not having a Will could result in the State deciding who should benefit from your life’s work, without your wishes being taken into account.

As part of its acknowledgement to a benefactor, the Museum is also able to arrange for the recitation of Kaddish for benefactors on the anniversary of death.

For a confidential discussion on how your bequest or endowment can perpetuate your family name and benefit the Museum, please contact Rob Schneider, the Museum’s Development Director, on 02 9360 7999.

The future is in your hands

Donations to the Sydney Jewish Museum are tax deductible.
